Those Still waiting on a Stimulus Check May Need to Register

Property Managers – share this information with your residents!

Some people never received their stimulus check; in fact, about 9 million have not.  Many of them probably don’t know they may need to register for it.  To get the word out the IRS will start mailing a letter out urging people to register to claim the money through the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS says the issue is the majority of people still waiting for payment don’t typically file federal tax returns because of low income, so the agency doesn’t have their information.  Anyone who hasn’t received a stimulus payment yet, and believes they should have, needs to take action by Oct. 15.  To get the word out, the IRS will start mailing a letter next week urging people to register to claim the money through www.irs.gov.If you are still waiting and are not part of the non-filers group, check the “get my payment” page on the IRS’s website  or call 800-829-1040.

Those who are eligible but don’t receive their money can file it as a tax credit next year. Read more
