IRS takes new steps to ensure people with children receive $500 Economic Impact Payments

The following is from a message from the Internal Revenue Service. The district is sharing this information as a public service. Please contact the IRS directly with any questions. 

The IRS will reopen the registration period for federal beneficiaries who didn’t receive $500 per child payments earlier this year. Certain federal benefit recipients should use the Non-Filers tool now through September 30 to enter information on their qualifying children to receive the supplemental $500 payments. Learn more on

The Economic Impact Payment Information Center now includes instructions for individuals who would like to claim the EIP by mailing a Form 1040 instead of using the Non-Filers tool.
