If you usually do not file taxes, you will most likely have to do so this year if you want to receive the stimulus checks that have already been processed and the third party that could be approved under the President Joe Biden’s Administration.
He Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is based on the tax information in your files and on data provided by other agencies of the Federal Government such as the Social Security Administration to process payments.
If for some reason your information is not in the system, you could be left without receiving payments even if you are eligible.
As part of the first round of payments of $ 1,200 under the CARES Act, the IRS enabled the online tool “Non-filers” for people who are not required to file taxes due to low income or because they are not generating income , submit their personal data to request payment.
However, for the second round of distribution that started at the end of December the above service is not available.
This is why the IRS called on the so-called “Non-filers” (non-filers) to carry out the tax return process as soon as the tax season begins on February 12 and claim the payment or payments owed through the “Credit of refund recovery ”.
The CNET medium in a report this week listed at least six groups of people who fit into the category of “non-filers”, but who must submit their information to the IRS to receive the “Economic Impact Payments.”
The six groups
• Beneficiaries of government funds from the SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) programs
• Individuals under 65 with income under $ 12,200
• Married persons under 65 years of age with income less than $ 24,400
• Singles 65 or older with income less than $ 13,850
• Married persons 65 years or older with income less than $ 27,000
• Veterans and Railroad Retirement Beneficiaries
Other reasons why you should apply for the tax credit
Other reasons why your check (s) did not arrive could be an incorrect direct deposit account or a change of residence.
Similarly, the recommendation of the IRS is to request payments through the tax credit, in case the money is not received in the next few weeks.
Another option that taxpayers have in case of not receiving the payment that corresponds to them is a “trace” or “payment fingerprint”.
But before the above, potential beneficiaries can use the online tool “Get My Payment” on the IRS website to track the status of the stimulus checks due and discard so the same is on its way.
