The IRS hasn’t been 100% flawless in handing out the stimulus funds. If you are still waiting for your check, or for your dependent funds, there are two important deadlines to know.
September 30, 2020: For federal benefit recipients who got their $1,200 but not their $500 for dependents, use the non-filers tool to claim your $500. If you have already registered your dependent through this tool, or filed a 2018 or 2019 tax return you do not need to do it again.
October 15th, 2020: If you do not normally file a tax return, you can use the non-filers tool to receive your funds by year end. Do not use the non-filers tool if you plan to submit a 2018 or 2019 tax return.
