There may be a catch for individuals who typically don’t file a tax return but are expecting to receive a stimulus check.
They may have to send a return to the government in order to get paid.
New guidance was released on Monday by the IRS, which said there would be “no action required for most people.”
For some, though, that’s not true.
“People who typically do not file a tax return will need to file a simple tax return to receive an economic impact payment,” the IRS stated. “Low-income taxpayers, senior citizens, Social Security recipients, some veterans and individuals with disabilities who are otherwise not required to file a tax return will not owe tax.”
That new information drew strong pushback from certain members of Congress and advocacy organizations, who argue that those individuals should not have to file just to get their money.
