If you did not file taxes in the past two years at Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Because you are low-income, today at 3 p.m. ET is the deadline for you to apply for the stimulus check to the agency if you have not received it.
The IRS extended the deadline from September 30 to this Saturday, November 21 to request funds online through the “Non-filers” application to try to reach as many beneficiaries as possible before the end of the year.
The figures that the agency manages indicate that at least 9 million people are eligible to receive the payment under the CARES law, but they must complete the process online since the office lacks the necessary information to process the minimum payment of $ 1,200 dollars.
Through the “Non-filers” service, users enter their personal data into the IRS processing system so that agency personnel can calculate the corresponding amount of money and send the economic impact payment.
Non-Filers was created for married couples with incomes under $ 24,400; and in the case of individuals, $ 12,200. The above includes couples or individuals living on the street or homeless. To receive the money, people cannot be dependent on others.
However, beneficiaries who have dependents can receive up to an additional $ 1,500 for children under the age of 17 in their care.
Individuals receiving Social Security retirement funds, survivor or disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Railroad Retirement benefits, and Veterans Affairs (C&P) Compensation and Pension benefits would also be eligible for assistance and would have to use the tool if you haven’t already.
To try to locate the recipients, the IRS sent some 9 million letters to people across the United States with the notice or Notice 1444-A that urges people to complete the online process of being eligible.
As of mid-September, the states with the most unsolicited checks were: California, Texas, Florida and New York.
People who submit their information through “Non-filers” until 3 pm this Saturday may require the check to be deposited into their bank account.
As listed by the IRS, a person is likely eligible for an economic impact payment if:
1. you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien
2. have a work-eligible Social Security number
3. cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s federal income tax return
There are at least four scenarios in which potential beneficiaries of coronavirus aid can make use of “Non-filers”.
1. if your income is less than $ 12,200 annually
2. if you are married, and you and your spouse filed joint returns for income of $ 24,000 or less
3. if you are not generating income at the moment
4. if you are not required to file federal tax returns for any other reason
If the potential beneficiary does not request payment until the indicated period, they must wait until the next tax season to claim the money owed.
