IRS Sets up Stimulus Check Website for Low-Income Populace

Because the Internal Revenue Service is using filed taxes from 2018 and 2019 to determine who to send stimulus checks to, a number of low-income Americans who don’t file have feared they’d be left out when the $1,200 payments start arriving. But now the IRS has fixed that.

The agency on Friday launched a new website to accommodate U.S. residents who might have otherwise fallen through the cracks, such as those who aren’t required to file because they make less than $12,200 a year. The New America Foundation estimates as many as 12 million residents fall into that category.

Low income residents who don’t file can register to receive their checks at IRS.gov.
