IRS and Treasury Release the Latest State-By-State Economic Impact Payment Figures
The Treasury Department and the IRS released updated state-by-state figures for Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) on May 22nd, reflecting the opening weeks of the program.
Along with the announcement came the following quote from IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig:
“Economic Impact Payments have continued going out at a rapid rate to Americans across the country. We remind people to visit IRS.gov for the latest information, including answers to the most common questions we see surrounding the payments. We also continue to urge those who don’t normally have a filing requirement, including those with little or no income, that they can quickly register for the payments on IRS.gov.”
Millions of people who are typically non-filers are still eligible to receive these EIPs. The payments are automatic for the following groups:
- People who filed a tax return in 2018 or 2019
- Recipients of Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI) and Railroad Retirement benefits
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who didn’t file a tax return in the last two years
For those who do not fit into these groups (i.e. anyone who doesn’t receive federal benefits and didn’t have a filing obligation in 2018 or 2019), the IRS “continues to encourage them to visit the Non-Filer tool at IRS.gov so they can quickly register for Economic Impact Payments.” People can continue to receive these payments throughout 2020.
