If you don’t file taxes, you may have wondered whether or not you’d receive a coronavirus stimulus check. Well, good news: the IRS just opened up a portal just for you to enter in direct deposit information so that they can determine your eligibility and payment amount, and send you your Economic Impact Payment.
If you’ve filed taxes for 2018 or 2019, receive Social Security retirement, disability, survivor benefits, or Railroad Retirement benefits, no need to do anything. You should automatically receive payment.
If your gross income was $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples) or less in 2019, you should enter your payment info.
Once you enter your payment information into the Non-Filers portal, you won’t need to do anything else. Plan to provide the following:
- full name, current mailing address, and email address
- date of birth
- valid Social Security Number
- Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN)
- driver’s license or state ID
- name, Social Security Number, or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number for each qualifying child
If you aren’t required to file a federal income tax return for 2019, you should enter your payment info.
Plan to provide the same information as mentioned above here.
