COVID-19 ECONOMIC STIMULUS PAYMENTS


What You Need To Know


AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS
Most taxpayers don’t need to take any extra steps to receive a payment. The IRS will use information from a taxpayer’s 2019 tax return if they’ve filed it, or their 2018 tax return, if they haven’t.

DEADLINE EXTENDED
2019 tax filing deadline extended to July 15, 2020. COVID-19 stimulus payment available through December 31, 2020

NON-FILERS
For non-filers who don’t have a return filing obligation, including those with too little income to file, visit this link to register for Economic Impact Payments. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here
