Do NOT use this tool if you will be filing a 2019 return. Using the tool instead of filing your 2019 return will slow down processing of your tax return and receiving any tax refund.
Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here is a free IRS tool that allows you to easily and quickly provide us the necessary 2019 information about yourself and any eligible spouse or qualifying children (Children under the age of 17 at the end of 2019). We will use this information to determine your eligibility and payment amount and send you an Economic Impact Payment. After providing this information, you won’t need to take any additional action.
Certain users of IRS Non-Filers tool to be issued $500 per qualifying child in August
IRS will issue $500 per qualifying child to eligible individuals who used the Non-Filers tool before May 17, 2020 and claimed at least one qualifying child. These users did not receive the qualifying child portion of the Economic Impact Payment (EIP) because of an error that was corrected on May 17, 2020.
IRS will automatically issue additional $500 EIP per qualifying child to affected individuals in early August. Direct deposit payments are scheduled for August 5, 2020, and paper checks are scheduled to be mailed August 7, 2020.
The IRS corrected the programming error on May 17, 2020. For individuals who used the Non-Filers tool on or after May 17, 2020, the EIP they received included the additional $500 per qualifying child.
You can use Get My Payment to check the status of the additional $500 EIP per qualifying child. You will also receive another Notice 1444 in the mail letting you know the additional $500 EIP per qualifying child was issued. Keep this letter for your records.
If you received your EIP by direct deposit, the additional $500 EIP per qualifying child will be deposited to the same bank account.
If you received your EIP in the mail, the additional $500 EIP per qualifying child will be mailed to your address of record.
