Today, the IRS announced a new web tool that allows Taxpayers who don’t usually file a tax return to enter their direct deposit information so they can receive their $1,200 Economic Impact Payment.
The new web portal is only available on IRS.gov. Users should look for non-filers: Enter payment info here to take them directly to the tool. On the page, you’ll see the blue box at the bottom to click.
The IRS said “Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info” is secure, and the information entered will be safe. The tool is based on Free File Fillable Forms, part of the Free File Alliance’s offerings of free products on IRS.gov.
People who don’t have a return filing obligation can use this tool to give us basic information so they can receive their Economic Impact Payments as soon as possible, said IRS Commissioner Chuch Rettig. The IRS and Free File Alliance have been working around the clock to deliver this new tool to help people.
The IRS has confirmed that using the tool to get your payment will not result in any taxes being owed, neither is the payment taxable and will not affect your 2020 refund.
Entering bank or financial account information will allow the IRS to deposit your payment directly into your account. Otherwise, your payment will be mailed to you as a paper check.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IT MAY TAKE AWHILE FOR YOUR CONFIRMATION EMAIL TO COME TO YOUR EMAIL SO THAT YOU CAN VERIFY IT, AND THEN SUBMIT YOUR INFORMATION
