IRS to mail special letters to non-filers

Later this month the Internal Revenue Service will start mailing letters to roughly 9 million Americans who typically don not file federal income tax returns who may be eligible for, but have not registered to claim, An Economic Impact Payment.
The letter will urge recipients to register at by Oct. 15 in order to receive their payment by the end of the year. Individuals can receive up to $1200, and married couples up to $2400. People with qualifying children under age 17 at the end of 2019 can get up to an additional $500 for each qualifying child.
The letters are being sent to people who haven’t filed a return for either 2018 or 2019.
The mailing will begin around Sept. 24, 2020 and will be delivered from an IRS address.
