his week’s outreach bundle includes materials on how the IRS has extended the Economic Impact Payment deadline to Nov. 21 to help non-filers. The IRS urges people who don’t typically file a tax return – and haven’t received an Economic Impact Payment – to register as quickly as possible using the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on IRS.gov. We also include materials that let people experiencing homelessness know they may still sign up for an EIP.
Special note: The Nov. 21 deadline is solely for those who have not received their EIP and don’t normally file a tax return. For taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2019 tax return, that deadline remains Oct. 15.
This week we’re also featuring our new IRS online publication called “A Closer Look” to provide a more detailed look at some of the major issues facing IRS and tax administration. “A Closer Look” will be published frequently and will include articles from a variety of IRS leaders. The initial post features IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig discussing ongoing work on Economic Impact Payments.
Please share and adapt these materials for your communications, including emails, newsletters, websites and other channels. We need your help in sharing these important outreach materials with your members, partners and clients.
