San Francisco Tax Preparation / CPA: 2.2 Million EIPs Disbursed Under American Rescue Plan

Filed in CCH NEWS FEED by on August 28, 2021

The IRS, Treasury and Bureau of the Fiscal Service announced disbursing more than 2.2 million additional Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) ( P.L. 117-2). The IRS will continue to disburse Economic Impact Payments on a weekly basis. Ongoing payments will be sent to eligible taxpayers for whom the Service previously did not have information to issue a payment but who recently filed a tax return, as well to people who qualify for plus-up payments.

The IRS has provided an online Non-Filer tool to allow individuals who were not required to file (and not filed) a return for 2020 to file a simplified tax return. Taxpayers can check the Get My Payment tool, at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment, to see the payment status of these payments. Additional information on EIPs is available at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments.
