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.
