IRS Opens Online Portal for Stimulus Payments

On Friday the IRS website made available an online portal for non-filers to submit their information to get their stimulus payments.

Who needs to use the portal?

If you receive:

  • veterans disability compensation
  • a pension
  • or survivor benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs
  • or your income level does not require you to file a tax return

then you need to submit information to the IRS to receive an Economic Impact Payment.

Who does not need to use the portal?

The following non-filer taxpayers do not need to use the portal:

  • You receive Social Security, Railroad Retirement, or SSDI benefits. The IRS will automatically send you an Economic Impact Payment.
  • You have already filed a 2019 federal income tax return.
  • Your 2019 gross income exceeded $12,200 ($24,400 for a married couple) or other reasons require you to file a 2019 federal tax return.
  • You were married at the end of 2019 and are not submitting information here with your spouse.
  • You were not a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident in 2019.

What information will you have to provide?

  • Full name, current mailing address and an email address
  • Date of birth and valid Social Security number
  • Bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one
  • Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) you received from the IRS earlier this year, if you have one
  • Driver’s license or state-issued ID, if you have one
  • For each qualifying child: name, Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number and their relationship to you or your spouse

How do I access the portal?

    • Only use the non-filer portal if you are not required to file a federal income tax return for 2019 for any reason including.
