The IRS has reopened the registration period for those who didn’t receive $500-per-child Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) earlier this year

August 18, 2020

Certain federal benefit recipients are urged to use the IRS’s “Non-Filers tool” from 8/15/20 through 9/30/20 to enter information on their qualifying children to receive the catch-up supplemental payments.

Parents eligible to provide this information include those with qualifying children who didn’t file a tax return in 2018 or 2019 and receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement benefits and Veterans Affairs Compensation-Pension benefits.
