The IRS’ extended deadline to apply for the Economic Impact Payments is tomorrow, September 30, 2020. This is the deadline for people to provide information to the IRS using its Non-Filer Tool (www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here). People should do this if they:
- receive Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits, or Supplemental Security Income payments;
- did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019;
- have a qualifying child under the age of 17; and
- did not already enter this information online for themselves and at least one child
If someone entered this information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool previously, they do not need to do anything further. The IRS states that they will automatically make an EIP payment in October 2020 based on the information already provided.
