You may qualify for an Economic Impact Payment even if you don’t usually file a tax return

Updated June 25, 2020

If you're a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or qualifying resident alien, you may qualify for an Economic Impact Payment. This is true even if you aren't normally required to file a tax return or are experiencing homelessness.

No income is required, and you will not owe taxes on the payment.

You probably don't file if your income is below:

  • $12,200 for singles
  • $24,400 for married couples

Eligible individuals, if they are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have a work eligible Social Security number, will receive:

  • $1,200 for singles
  • $2,400 for married couples
  •  Up to an additional $500 per qualifying children
