To help people get through the pandemic, the IRS has sent out three stimulus payments. Many people have not gotten all the money they should have. If you file your taxes this year, it will help you get all the money you and your family are owed.

Here's why you should file for a stimulus payment as soon as you can:

  • You might not have gotten all the money you and your family are owed. If you do not have earnings from work, or you get disability benefits, you can get your full stimulus payments by filing taxes now.

  • Even if you did not qualify to get a stimulus payment before, you might now. The rules about who can get stimulus payments keep changing. File taxes to see if you are owed money, and to make it easier to get money in the future.

  • You may be eligible to get another payment in the future. If you have children living with you as of 2020, you might get another payment later in 2021. You can qualify to get this money by filing your 2020 taxes.

 

*The deadline to file your taxes is May 17, 2021. The IRS has free filing help.
