The IRS continues to remind taxpayers to file for their $1,200 stimulus check by 3 p.m. Nov. 21 if they haven’t already. Its most recent reminder targets self-supporting college students who don’t need to file an annual tax return.
“College students in particular should be careful not to overlook these payments if they’re supporting themselves and can’t be claimed as a dependent on someone’s tax returns,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig in a statement. “A few minutes of research could really help students.”
Eligible students who miss the Nov. 21 cutoff will need to wait until next year and claim the Recovery Rebate Credit when they file their 2020 federal income tax return in early 2021.
