IRS contacting 9 million Americans who may qualify for stimulus check
Sep 19, 2020 1 min, 3 secs

California has the most residents who may be eligible for, but have yet to claim, a stimulus check, at 1.2 million, followed by Texas (796,000), Florida (567,000), New York (538,000) and Georgia (349,000).

"We are releasing this state-by-state information so that state and local leaders and organizations can better understand the size of this population in their communities and assist them in claiming these important payments," IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a statement on Friday.

Now, IRS wants to reach people who may have missed out on getting the stimulus payments because they don't file a federal tax return.

The agency said that people have until October 15 to register for IRS.gov's "non-filer tool" to receive their payments by year-end.

People can provide their bank account information to the agency when they use the non-filters tool, which will allow the IRS to wire them the money by year-end.

People who don't provide bank information will receive a check by mail. .

The IRS has cautioned that receiving a letter about registering by October 15 isn't a guarantee that someone is eligible to get a stimulus check.

Although many Americans may be able to claim their so-called Economic Impact Payment, the odds of another round of stimulus checks going this year are fading, according to Goldman Sachs
