National EIP Registration Day

On November 9, 2020, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced a reminder for National EIP Registration Day. The IRS designated November 10 Economic Impact Payment (EIP) Day to encourage all eligible Americans to register prior to the November 21 EIP deadline. Any eligible American who registers prior to November 21 could receive an Economic Impact Payment. The payment is $1,200 for an individual or $2,400 for married couples filing jointly. If there are dependent children, there is an additional $500 payment for each qualified child.

The IRS and partner groups are reaching out to low–income and underserved communities. The IRS sent nine million letters to individuals who potentially qualify for the Economic Impact Payments, but do not file tax returns. The letters urged individuals to use the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on IRS.gov.

IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig stated, "Our partner groups have been vital to our efforts to reach many underserved communities. Already, millions of Americans have successfully used the Non–Filers portal and received their Economic Impact Payment. Registration is quick and easy, and we urge everyone to share this information to reach as many people before time runs out on November 21."

These partner groups have translated EIP publications into 35 different languages. The IRS also has a mounted a multilingual effort on social media.

The Non–Filers tool has been a success. Over 8 million people who normally do not file tax returns have registered for Economic Impact Payments. The Non–Filers tool is designed to assist individuals, who are not claimed as a dependent on another person's return, with incomes under $12,200 and married couples with incomes under $24,400.

The IRS urges the individuals using the Non–Filers tool to select direct deposits to their checking or savings account. Within two weeks of registering on IRS.gov, individuals may track the status of their EIP with the Get My Payment tool on IRS.gov.

The IRS.gov website also has a helpful frequently asked questions (FAQ) section. It is available on the Economic Impact Payment Information Center section.
