IRS Urges Veterans to Register for $1,200 Stimulus Payment by Nov. 21
Tuesday, November 10, 2020
All U.S. veterans, including those who don’t file a tax return, may be eligible for the $1,200 Economic Impact Payments (EIP) approved by Congress in the spring to to kickstart the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Internal Revenue Service declared today, Nov. 10, as National EIP Registration Day. Veterans have until Nov. 21 to register for a payment. They can qualify even if they don’t work or lack any earned income, according to the IRS.
If you are a veteran or know someone who is, use the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on the IRS website. By choosing direct deposit, veterans will get their money faster. Those who don’t will receive a check in the mail. Veterans can track the status of their payment starting two weeks after registering.
