Use IRS Non-Filers tool to get Economic Impact Payment; many low-income, homeless qualify.

The Internal Revenue Service today reminds low-income Americans to use the free, online tool Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info to quickly and easily register to receive their Economic Impact Payment.The IRS has recently released a new Spanish language version of the tool to help even more Americans get their money quickly and easily.


“The IRS is working hard to find new ways for people who don’t have a filing requirement to receive their Economic Impact Payment,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “The Non-Filers tool is an easy way people can register for these payments. I appreciate the work of the Free File Alliance to quickly develop a Spanish-language version of this tool to reach additional people. This is part of a wider effort to reach underserved communities.” 


How do I use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info tool?

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, calculate and send an 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, which will take longer to receive than by direct deposit.

Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info is secure, and the information entered will be safe. The tool is based on Free File Fillable Forms, part of the Free File Alliance’s offerings of free products on IRS.gov.


Who should use the Non-Filers tool?

This new tool is designed for people who did not file a tax return for 2018 or 2019 and are not required to do so under the law. Usually, this means couples with incomes below $24,400 and singles with incomes below $12,200 in 2019.

In addition, the Non-Filers tool can also help families receiving certain government benefits get additional payment amounts, based on their children. These include those receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who did not file returns for 2018 or 2019. These recipients need to make the updates for the children in the tool by May 5.
