COVID-19 Financial Resource Update:
Economic Impact Payments – Non-filers EIP deadline extended to November 21, 2020.
- According to the IRS, more than 111,000 limited income Wisconsinites still might be eligible for the EIP, but have not filed a request for a payment. These individuals now have until November 21 to visit the IRS Non-filers Tool to see if they are eligible for a payment. After Nov. 21, these individuals will need to file taxes for 2020 to receive an EIP.
- The IRS has started sending this letter to people who don’t typically file a tax return because they appear to have very low incomes based on Forms W-2 and 1099, and other third-party statements available to the IRS. Note that getting a letter does not mean that you are automatically eligible for the EIP.
