The IRS takes new steps to ensure people with children receive $500 Economic Impact Payments

The IRS has extended its deadline to September 30, 2020 to provide information to the IRS using its IRS’ Non-Filer Tool if you:



  • Receive Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits, or SSI payments.
  • Did not file a 2019 or 2018 tax return.
  • Have a qualifying child under age 17.
  • You did not already enter information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool for you and at least one child.

If you already entered information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool before and even after the IRS’ previously announced deadlines (April 22 if you receive Social Security; May 5 if you receive SSI), you do not need to do anything. The IRS will automatically make a payment in October based on the information you provided them.

Please read the IRS’ August 14 press release for more details.

  1. We need not receive the $500 for our daughter. I have tried to complete the forms but it will not let me input the required information. How can I request my daughters portion of the stimulus package. My husband & I received ours. He is on disability but we do file taxes each year.

  2. Good afternoon,
    My name is Madeline Dunn. I am writing because My ex husband wrongfully claimed my 3 children on his taxes this year. ( Tyler Lloyd, Ryan Lloyd and Bry’Onna Lloyd).
    I am in the process of court because of it. Due to my ex doing so, I did not receive the first stimulus payment for the children and I am worried that I will not receive it with the next stimulus payment. I have tried to contact the IRS but am unable to get through. Is there anyone I can speak to to resolve this matter?
