IRS extends deadline for non-filers to register for stimulus checks

WASHINGTON—The IRS has extended the deadline for people who don’t typically file a tax return to register for a stimulus check.

The deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment is now November 21, 2020, which is five weeks longer than the initial October 15 cut-off.

According to the IRS, the new deadline is only for people who have not received a stimulus check and do not typically file a tax return.

People who requested an extension for filing their 2019 tax return still must register by October 15.

The IRS said that it sent out nearly 9 million letters in September to people who may be eligible for the $1,200 stimulus check but don’t normally file a tax return. These people often have little to no income, according to the IRS.
