Time is running out to register for a $1,200 stimulus check for people who haven’t yet received the federal payment and don’t normally file tax returns. The IRS said it will close its registration site on November 21 at 3 p.m. Eastern time
College students and low-income adults may be among those who qualify for the money but haven’t yet received a check, the tax agency said. The IRS had sent letters to about 9 million people who may be eligible for a check, reminding them of the deadline to register at the agency’s so-called Non-Filers tool to qualify for the payment.
The IRS is trying to track down people who earlier missed the stimulus payments, which were authorized in March by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. That law provided up to $1,200 to eligible individuals and up to $2,400 for married couples, with an additional $500 for each dependent under 17.
