Millions of Americans Missing Out on Owed Stimulus Checks, IRS Says

The IRS is attempting to reach millions of Americans who may be able to receive an economic impact payment but haven’t provided the necessary information to the federal government.

The agency said Tuesday it will send letters to nine million people, many of whom have low incomes, later in the month who aren’t required to file tax returns and haven’t sent information to the agency to claim their stimulus checks, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig encourages those citizens to claim their money.

“Millions who don’t normally file a tax return have already registered and received a payment,” Rettig said in a statement, WTTG reported. “We are taking this extra step to help Americans who may not know they could be eligible for this payment or don’t know how to register for one. People who aren’t required to file a tax return can quickly register on IRS.gov and still get their money this year.”

People in the group can fill out the non-filers tool by Oct. 15 to receive their stimulus check this year and mailings for the program are expected to begin Sept. 24, WTTG-TV reported.
