If You Did Not Receive Your $1200 Economic Impact Payment


June 12, 2020

You may be eligible to use the IRS's Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool to get your Economic Impact Payment. You can find this tool only on IRS.gov.

This new tool is designed for people eligible for the Economic Impact Payment who did not file a tax return for 2018 or 2019 and who don't receive Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI), survivor benefits, supplemental security income (SSI), Railroad Retirement benefits, or Veterans Affairs Compensation and Pension (C&P) benefits. If you received these benefits, don't have a qualifying child under age 17 and your spouse, if any, also received these benefits, you don’t need to use the tool. However, you can use the tool to claim the $500 for each qualifying child under age 17 or claim $2,400 as a married couple even if you receive these benefits. You have until noon on May 5, 2020, to register to receive the additional amounts with your automatic payment. These additional amounts will be paid this year if the IRS receives your information before the deadline. If you do not register this information before the deadline, you can file a tax return next year to claim the additional amount.

You're likely eligible for an Economic Impact Payment if you meet all these requirements:

  • Are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, resident alien, or qualifying resident alien
  • Have a Social Security number that is valid for employment,
  • Could not be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer, and
  • Had adjusted gross income under certain limits.

You can use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool to provide simple information so you can get your payment. You should use this application if you meet all these requirements:

  • Are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident,
  • Had gross income that did not exceed $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples) for 2019, and
  • Did not file a return for 2018 or 2019 and were not otherwise required to file a federal income tax return for 2019.
