Applying for Federal Stimulus Payment Information for Non-Filers 

If you don’t file taxes, you may use the “Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info Here” application to provide simple information so you can get your federal stimulus payment.

You should use this application if:

  • You did not file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return because your gross income was under $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples). This includes people who had no income.
  • You weren’t required to file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return for other reasons

You can provide the necessary information to the IRS easily and quickly for no fee through Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info.

  • The IRS will use this information to determine your eligibility and payment amount and send you an Economic Impact Payment. After providing this information you won’t need to take any additional action.

If you receive these benefits, the IRS already has your information and you will receive $1,200. Do not use this application if you receive:

  • Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI), or survivor benefits
  • Railroad Retirement and Survivor Benefits
