While congress continues to debate a second stimulus package, the IRS is still working to deliver out the first one.
Officials say they’ll be sending out a letter on a state-by-state basis, to those who are eligible for the $1,200 stimulus and didn’t receive it back in March.
That includes over 159,000 residents in the Show Me State.
The IRS Says those who haven’t filed a tax return or are non-filers in general, must register before October 15th to receive the stimulus.
Individuals can receive up to $1,200, and married couples can receive up to $2,400. People with qualifying children under age 17 at the end of 2019 can get up to an additional $500 for each qualifying child, the release said.
The IRS said receiving a letter is not a guarantee of eligibility. You’re likely eligible for a payment if you:
- Are a U.S. citizen or resident alien
- Have a work-eligible Social Security number
- Can’t be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s federal income tax return.
