IRS Extends Deadline to Claim EIPs
The Internal Revenue Service extended the deadline to Nov. 21 to claim CARES Act economic impact payment and designated Nov. 10 as “National EIP Registration Day” as part of a final push to get the approximately 9 million Americans who do not typically file federal income tax returns to register for the payment.
The IRS said it will be providing additional support before the extended deadline with partners that work with low-income and underserved communities and that it has sent out almost 9 million letters to people who may be eligible for an EIP but do not normally file tax returns. Most eligible U.S. taxpayers automatically received their EIPs earlier this year; for those who do not have a filing obligation, the IRS created a non-filers’ tool online for people to register and get their EIPs.
Individuals can receive up to $1,200; married couples can receive up to $2,400, and those with children under the age of 17 may receive up to an additional $500 per qualifying child. Read more.
