Still No Stimulus Check? IRS Designates November 10 As “National EIP Registration Day”

Published

on


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has designated November 10 as “National EIP Registration Day.” The event is intended to serve as a final push for those who doesn’t normally file a tax return to register to receive an Economic Impact Payment (EIP, or more commonly, stimulus check).

“National EIP Registration Day” will feature support from IRS partner groups inside and outside of the tax community, including those that work with low-income and underserved communities. Many of those groups have been working with the IRS, helping translate and making available stimulus check information and resources in 35 languages.

The IRS also plans a special push on social media to support the final registration drive in multiple languages. You can follow the IRS on Twitter @IRSNews, like them on Facebook @IRS, and follow them on Instagram @IRSNews.

The point of the added publicity is to call attention to the new November 21 deadline. Last month, the IRS extended the deadline to register for your stimulus check to November 21, 2020. This new date gives you an additional five weeks past the previous October 15, 2020, deadline.

Stimulus Check Letters Are In The Mail

The IRS has already sent nearly 9 million letters to people who may be eligible for the $1,200 checks but don’t normally file a tax return. Those folks have been identified as potential check recipients based on an internal analysis of forms, like Forms W-2, 1099s, and other third-party statements sent to the IRS each year, but have not been matched with tax returns. This is generally Americans who have an annual income of $24,400 or less for married couples and $12,200 or less for single folks.

The letter, officially known as IRS Notice 1444-A, advises non-filers that they should register at IRS.gov by the deadline to receive a check by the end of the year. If you miss the date, you will have to wait until next year and claim the credit on your 2020 federal income tax return (the one that you’ll file in 2021) to receive a check.

The letters, along with the special November 10 event, both urge people to use the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here on IRS.gov.

“Our partner groups have been a critical part of the unprecedented IRS outreach and education campaign this year to contact as many people as possible about these payments,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “As a result, millions of Americans have successfully used the Non-filers portal and received their Economic Impact Payment. Registration is quick and easy, and we urge everyone to share this information to reach as many people before time runs out on November 21.”

How To Register To Get A Stimulus Check

To register for your payment, simply click over to the IRS website and use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool. There is no cost to register. You can speed up your check’s arrival by choosing to receive it by direct deposit; if you don’t opt for direct deposit, you’ll get a paper check by mail.

If you cannot use the tool or don’t have adequate access to the internet, you can file a federal income tax return for 2019 with the IRS even if you receive non-taxable income or do not make enough money to normally have to file a tax return. The IRS encourages taxpayers to file electronically through their tax preparer, tax software provider, or IRS Free File.

But file soon: the tool will not be available after November 21.

Track The Status Of Your Payment

If you’re anxious to receive your check, you will be able to monitor its progress. Beginning two weeks after you register, you can track the status of their payment using the Get My Payment tool, available only on IRS.gov.
