The government of the United States strives to continue to provide the American public stimulus check payments following the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, as the policy continues to be used, the question arises as to whether non-filers will receive more payments.
What is a stimulus check payment?
A stimulus check is a check sent to a taxpayer by the US government, and its intention is to stimulate the economy by providing taxpayers with money to spend in stores and restaurants.
With many having lost their jobs due to the pandemic, consumerism has plummeted in the United States, with many people no longer able to spend money on things other than the essentials.
These checks are supposed to allow people to spend in stores, helping money flow through the economy and enhancing the overall security of the US job market.
What is a non-tax declarant?
In American terminology, a non-filer is someone who is not expected to file an income tax return or be declared liable for tax.
Non-filers can also be people who intend to file taxes but don’t do so by a certain date, either by design or by complete accident.
How can non-filers claim their stimulus checks?
The best way for an individual to claim their stimulus checks is to submit their information through the IRS ‘Non Filers Enter Payment Info’ online portal. From there, a person will be able to choose how they will receive their payments.
The fastest way is direct deposit, either to a bank or credit union account, or to an eligible prepaid card.
Most people will receive their payments automatically, but non-filers will need to take the aforementioned steps in order to receive the money owed to them by the government.
