COVID Tax Tip 2020-51: Low-income people are eligible to get an Economic Impact Payment

The Non-Filers tool (also available in Spanish) is for married couples with incomes below $24,400 or single people with income below $12,200. This includes couples and individuals who are homeless. Usually, married couples qualify to receive $2,400 while single people qualify to get $1,200. People with dependents under 17 can get up to an additional $500 for each child.

Even if a person doesn’t work, they can still qualify for an Economic Impact Payment. However, if they were claimed as a dependent by someone else, they are not eligible.

If a person is not required to file a federal income tax return, they generally qualify for an Economic Impact Payment. Since the IRS does not know who these people are, the only way they can get the Economic Impact Payment is to register with the IRS.

For those who don’t normally file a tax return, the process is simple and only takes a few minutes. First, visit IRS.gov and look for Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here. Then provide basic information including Social Security Number, name, address, and dependents.

The IRS will use this information to confirm eligibility and send the Economic Impact Payment. No tax will be due as a result of receiving the payment. Entering bank or financial account information will allow the IRS to quickly deposit the payment directly in a savings or checking account. Otherwise, the payment will be mailed. Information entered on this site is secure.

Who should not use the tool? 
Anyone who already filed either a 2018 or 2019 return does not qualify to use this tool. Similarly, anyone who needs to file either a 2018 or 2019 return should not use this tool, but instead they should file their tax returns. This includes anyone who files a return to claim various tax benefits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit for low-and moderate-income workers and working families.
