Didn't Get A Stimulus Check? Deadline To Claim It This Weekend
The deadline is today for anyone looking to claim the $1,200 stimulus check.
Anyone who did not get a COVID-19 stimulus check has until midnight Saturday to claim it.
The COVID-19 stimulus package passed earlier in 2020 included a $1,200 check per person. People with children were also eligible for a $500 per-child bonus.
But many people in low-income and underserved communities did not get a stimulus check because they don’t make enough money to file a tax return, which is how the IRS distributed the funds.
“The only people who should register are those who don’t typically file a tax return, are not required to do so and have not yet registered, or for certain benefit recipients who got an EIP for themselves but need to provide information about a non-beneficiary spouse or qualifying child,” the IRS said in a statement.
The IRS has extended the deadline multiple times, but say they can’t extend it any longer. The final deadline to register is November 21.
