If you don’t make much money, and you don’t normally file taxes with the IRS, you may not have gotten your Stimulus Check. That’s because the IRS doesn’t have the information it needs to send you a payment.
The IRS has set November 10th as National Economic Impact Payment Registration Day. They hope to raise awareness that many low-income Americans can still register to get their payment. At $1,200 per person and $500 for each qualifying child, these payments can make a real difference.
But time is running out! The deadline to register is Saturday, November 21st by 3 p.m.!
The tool is designed for people with incomes typically below $24,400 for married couples, and $12,200 for singles. This includes people with no income and those who are experiencing homelessness.
People who receive Social Security Retirement, Disability, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement or veteran's benefits, but didn't receive a $500 per child payment with their own Economic Impact Payment, can also use the tool by November 21 to get the payment for their child.
Again, you must register by 3 p.m. on November 21. If you don’t, you won’t be able to get your payment until you file a 2020 tax return in 2021.
