Seniors and low-income people who do not file tax returns can finally submit their information to the Internal Revenue Service to receive their coronavirus stimulus checks, but others who need to update their information from their latest tax returns will have to wait longer.
The IRS launched a web page Friday where people who did not file a 2019 or 2018 tax returns can enter their direct deposit information to receive coronavirus stimulus checks.
The IRS is sending out stimulus checks of $1,200 to most Americans, as well as $500 for most child dependents. Most Americans will receive the checks via direct deposit, with the IRS using the bank account information of their 2019 or 2018 filed tax returns.
Most people do not need to send additional information to receive the money. Others who did not file tax returns over the past two years, or whose banking information changed, have been waiting for the IRS to provide updates on the process. The IRS has told people not to call and that a portal would be made available online.
