Most eligible individuals receive their Economic Impact Payment automatically. However, some eligible Americans with incomes that do not require them to file a tax return, including some Americans experiencing homelessness, will need to submit information to the IRS by November 21st to receive their payment.
The IRS has a free and easy online tool to help you submit your information. It’s called “Non Filers: Enter Payment Info Here.” You can find it by going to IRS.gov/nonfilereip. Only use this tool to submit basic information to claim an economic impact payment if you are a U.S. Citizen, or resident alien with a Social Security Number that is valid for employment, and you don’t typically file taxes because your adjusted gross income does not exceed $12,200, or $24,400 for married couples, and you’re not claimed as a dependent of another taxpayer.
However, if you are required to file a tax return, or should because you’re entitled to a refund, do not use the non-filer online tool. File your tax return electronically. Using the non-filers tool is easy and only takes a few minutes. First go to IRS.gov/nonfilereip. Click the “Enter Your Information” link, which will take you to the tool where you can begin filling out the form. You will need to provide the full name, a current mailing address, birthdate, and social security number of each person being claimed for the payment. Remember to include your spouse and qualifying children.
You will also need the bank account and routing number where the payment should be deposited; otherwise, your payment will be mailed to you. Follow the steps and complete the process online to get your payment as quickly as possible. After providing this information, you won’t need to take any additional action. We will use this information to determine your eligibility and payment amount, and send you an Economic Impact Payment. Remember, if you are eligible and don’t have a filing requirement, claim your economic impact payment by visiting IRS.gov/nonfilereip.
