As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the US government is aiming to continue providing stimulus checks to the American people.
However, if the policy is kept in place, it is unclear if non-filers will receive further money.
What exactly is a stimulus check?
A stimulus check is a check sent by the United States government to a taxpayer with the goal of stimulating the economy by providing money to spend at businesses and restaurants.
Consumption has fallen in the United States as a result of the pandemic, with many people no longer able to spend money on things other than necessities.
These checks are intended to allow consumers to spend money in stores, allowing money to circulate throughout the economy and bolstering the overall security of the American labor market.
What is a non-filer of taxes?
A Non-Filer is a person who isn’t required to file a tax return or be claimed as a tax dependent in the United States.
Non-filers can also be those who want to file taxes but do not do so by a specific deadline, whether on purpose or by accident.
What are the options for non-filers to get their stimulus checks?
Individuals should submit their information to the IRS’s ‘Non-Filers Enter Payment Info’ site online to claim their stimulus payments. A user will then be able to select how they want to receive their payments.
Direct deposit to a bank or credit union account, or to an authorized prepaid card, is the quickest method.
The majority of people will automatically receive their payments, however, non-filers will need to perform the steps outlined above in order to obtain the money owed to them by the government.
