Tuesday Tip: Economic Impact Payment for Non-Filers

Posted On: September 13, 2020

Vickie discusses information about the Economic Impact Payment for Non-Filers (RHIIP Listserv #445) in this week’s Tuesday Tip!

Information for the Non-Filers Economic Impact Payment tool on a flyer that you can easily send out to your residents. Download the flyer for the Non-Filers tool here. Let your residents know how non-filers can register to receive an Economic Impact Payment. It’s important to make sure your residents know that they are qualified and entitled to their stimulus payment.

Information Non-Filers will need to provide

  • Full name, current mailing address and an email address
  • Date of birth and valid Social Security number
  • Bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one
  • Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) you received from the IRS earlier this year, if you have one
    • Taxpayers who previously have been issued an Identity Protection PIN but lost it, must use the Get an IP PIN tool to retrieve their numbers
  • Driver’s license or state-issued ID, if you have one
  • For each qualifying child during 2019: name, Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number and their relationship to you or your spouse

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is looking for creative solutions to reach underserved populations. To make sure every eligible person receives their stimulus payment, they’re looking to reach those who don’t generally use banks. Since the IRS doesn’t know who these individuals are, the only way the IRS can send them their Economic Impact Payment is for those individuals to register with the IRS.

Who is eligible for the Economic Impact Payment?

Low-income individuals who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or qualifying resident aliens with a work-eligible Social Security number are eligible to receive an Economic Impact Payment. Those who DO NOT have a regular filing requirement can use the “Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info” tool to conveniently register to receive their payment. There is also a version of the tool available in Spanish.
