New IRS Portal for Non-filing Taxpayers to Enter Payment Information & Receive Economic Impact Payments

Client Alert

The IRS has created a portal for non-filers to enter payment information in order to receive the economic impact payments. This portal is for taxpayers who have gross income that does not exceed $12,200 if single and $24,400 if married filing jointly, or were not otherwise required, nor plan, to file a tax return for 2019. 

Taxpayers Will Need to Provide the IRS with the Following Information:

  • Full name, current mailing address and an email address
  • Date of birth and valid Social Security number
  • Bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one
  • Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) you received from the IRS earlier this year, if you have one
  • Driver’s license or state-issued ID, if you have one
  • For each qualifying child: name, Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number and their relationship to you or your spouse

What Taxpayers Can Expect Next: 

  • The taxpayer will need to create an account using an email address and phone number.
  • Once an account is created, the taxpayer will be able to begin inputting his/her information.
  • When the taxpayer’s information is entered into the portal, the taxpayer will receive an email from Customer Service at Free File Fillable Forms that either acknowledges the taxpayer successfully submitted the information or that there was a problem that needs corrected. 

This portal is for taxpayers not required to file a tax return. Taxpayers who filed a 2018 or 2019 tax return, receive Social Security, SSDI, survivor benefits, or Railroad Retirement benefits will automatically receive their economic impact payments. 

For additional questions related to the economic impact payment or assistance filing your tax return, please contact BMD Tax Law Attorney Tracy Albanese at tlalbanese@bmdllc.com or (330) 253-9195.
