The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is alerting people who do not normally file income taxes that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has extended to November 21 the deadline to apply for a CARES Act Economic Impact Payment (EIP). Millions of people who do not normally file income taxes are eligible to receive EIP, commonly referred to as a stimulus check. The IRS Non-Filers tool will be available through November 21.
CFPB released a guide, Helping Consumers Claim the Economic Impact Payment: A Guide for Intermediary Organizations. The Guide contains step-by-step information for direct service providers and community organizations to help “non-filers” apply to receive EIP. CFPB also has flyers in English and Spanish.
