Economic Impact Payment Deadline Extended

On October 5, 2020, the Internal Revenue Service announced that the deadline for non-filers to register for an Economic Impact Payment (EIP) has been extended to November 21, 2020. This extension provides an additional five weeks to apply for an Economic Impact Payment.

Millions of Americans who do not file a tax return have not yet received an Economic Impact Payment. They should use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool on

IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig stated, "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. 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."

The five-week extension will be welcomed by individuals who have not received a payment and do not typically file a tax return. The IRS sent nine million letters in September to people who are in this status and may be eligible for the $1,200 Economic Impact Payments.

Rettig continued, "Time is running out for those who don't normally file a tax return to get their payments. Registration is quick and easy, and we urge everyone to share this information to reach as many people [as possible] before the deadline."

The Non-Filers tool is usually available for individuals with income below $12,200, for married couples with incomes below $24,400 and other persons who are not claimed as a dependent on another return.

The IRS also reminded taxpayers who have filed an extension that their tax return is due on October 15, 2020. An exception to this filing date exists for military members serving in a combat zone. They may file 180 days after departing the combat zone. Some taxpayers in federally-declared disaster areas may also qualify for extensions. Further information on disaster area extensions is available on

Those taxpayers who file before October 15 and owe additional tax have several payment options. They can set up a direct payment online from a bank account using their tax software or through the IRS Direct Pay program. A taxpayer may also use a credit card, debit card or digital wallet option. These payment options involve fees to the vendor, but none of these additional costs are paid to the IRS. Finally, a taxpayer may use the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System and pay online or by phone.
