New York: IRS to send letters for thousands to claim check for coronavirus
In the state of New York, the IRS will send letters so that thousands of people can claim the coronavirus check that corresponds to them as stipulated by the Cares Act.
The schedule of scheduled shipments of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has already ended, however, the agency revealed that there are still millions of people who have not claimed their economic stimulus payment and the agency is doing everything possible to contact them.
This Thursday they announced that as of September 24 they would be sending explanatory letters (or notice 1444-A) to those Americans who would be potentially eligible, but who have not offered the necessary information for their money to be sent to them.
Among the states with the most people not yet receiving a stimulus check is New York. It ranks fourth with a total of 537,726 people the IRS will send the letter to so you can claim federal aid. The IRS thinks that the majority of these are low-income individuals who are not required to file taxes and for this reason the agency does not have information about them.
Just as the IRS will send the document to 537,726 New York residents, it will do so in other states. These are the states where there are more people who have not yet received a stimulus check:
1st place: In California, the IRS estimates 1,186,896 people would be absent for claiming the economic stimulus check.
2nd place: In Texas, 796,525 beneficiaries of the coronavirus check could be missing.
3rd place: In Florida, the IRS expects that some 567,425 people have not applied for their financial aid payment.
Beginning September 24, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will begin sending letters to nine million people in the United States who have been unable to receive their coronavirus checks due to not filing taxes.
Despite the fact that these nine million people did not file their taxes, they are eligible for the benefit approved by Congress and the Trump administration last March.
So the IRS will start sending you letters to let you know that you are eligible to receive your coronavirus check for $ 1,200, or $ 2,400 for couples, plus an additional $ 500 for each minor dependent.
The IRS on Friday released updated status figures of the roughly 9 million people who will receive a special letter in the mail this month, encouraging them to see if they are eligible to claim an economic impact payment, the agency reported in a statement.
The IRS will mail the letters to people who are not normally required to file federal tax returns, but who may qualify for an economic impact payment.
The letter urges recipients to visit the special tool Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here on IRS.gov, before the October 15 due date to sign up for an economic impact payment.
“The IRS continues to work hard to communicate to eligible individuals regarding these payments,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in the statement.
“These mailed letters are the IRS ‘latest step in communicating with as many people as possible about these important payments,” Rettig added.
“We publish this information state-by-state so that state and local leaders, as well as organizations can better understand the size of this population in their communities and help them claim these important payments,” explained the commissioner.
“The due date to claim a payment is approaching,” he said.
These letters from the IRS are part of a final stage in the broad outreach and public awareness campaign on Economic Impact Payments that began in March.
