Last fall, the IRS estimated that as many as 9 million people who were eligible for a stimulus payment hadn’t received one, many of them unhoused. The reason you haven’t received stimulus money is most likely because the IRS doesn’t have enough information about you to determine you’re eligible and send you a payment. If you don’t file taxes each year or receive government benefits like Social Security, there may be no recent proof of your income or location in IRS systems. The IRS referenced people’s tax returns from 2018, 2019 or 2020 to determine eligibility; the most recent round only checks against 2019 or 2020 tax returns or benefit records. .
However, there is a hurdle if you want to claim your stimulus payment: You’ll need to file a 2020 tax return.
