How to get your stimulus payment if you didn’t file a tax return in 2019

Posted by Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations on April 14, 2020

Let your community members know that if they didn’t file a federal tax return in 2018 or 2019, they can now go to this site set up by the IRS to enter their information to receive their stimulus payment check:

Congress approved these payments as part of corona virus relief.  Individuals with social security numbers earning under $75,000 can get $1,200 and $500 for every qualified child; married couples earning $150,000 or less could get $2,400.  A smaller payment is available for individuals earning less than $99,000 (or $198,000 for joint filers).

If you did file a return last year but didn’t provide the IRS with your bank account information, you’ll soon be able to supply them with your account info for direct deposit.  Check back to this site in mid-April to enter that information:

Taxpayers that filed in either 2018 or 2019 and provided their bank account information will get their payments direct deposited automatically.  Otherwise, the IRS will mail checks to taxpayers over the coming weeks and months.
