The Internal Revenue Service has extended the deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment (EIP) to Nov. 21, providing an additional five weeks beyond the original Oct. 15 deadline.
Those who typically don’t file a tax return — and haven’t received an EIP — should register using the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on IRS.gov. The tool will not be available after Nov. 21.
“We took this step to provide more time for those who have not yet received a payment to register to get their money, including those in low-income and underserved communities,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said Monday in a statement. “The IRS is deeply involved in processing and programming that overlaps filing seasons. Any further extension beyond November would adversely impact our work on the 2020 and 2021 filing seasons.”
For taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2019 tax return, that deadline date remains Oct. 15.
