The deadline to register for your stimulus check (or more properly, your “Economic Impact Payment”) using the Non-Filers tool has extended to November 21, 2020.
If you or a family member typically don’t have to file a tax return and haven’t received an Economic Impact Payment, you should register as quickly as possible using the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on IRS.gov. The tool will not be available after November 21.
This additional time is only for those who haven’t registered or received their Economic Impact Payment and don’t normally file a tax return. For taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2019 tax return, that deadline was October 15.
Most eligible U.S. taxpayers automatically received their Economic Impact Payment, but others who don’t have a file a tax return need to use the Non-Filers tool to register with the IRS to get up to $1,200. Typically, this includes seniors and people who receive little or no income.
Additionally, anyone using the Non-Filers tool can speed up the arrival of their payment by choosing to receive it by direct deposit. Those not choosing this option will get a check.
Beginning two weeks after they register, people can track the status of their payment using the Get My Payment tool, available on IRS.gov.
