Millions of American Taxpayers were aided by 3 rounds of stimulus check payments during the epidemic, but up to ten million recipients could still be waiting for their funds, in accordance with a recent government study.
The Office of Government Accountability on Tuesday release their calculations that 165 mn Americans remain eligible for the stimulus check payouts, which included $931 bn in direct bank transfer payments. The IRS used tax records to make eligibility determinations and provide payouts to people and their families, sending the checks to addresses of their house or bank accounts.
However, millions of American taxpayers, including some people with extremely low incomes and certain elderly who solely get Social Security payments, are exempt from the tax filing requirement. They may not have received all of their payouts because the IRS found it challenging to contact them as it was handing out stimulus check payments, according to the GAO.
If You Were Eligible Yet Haven’t Claimed Your Stimulus Check Funds: Now Is The Time:
The office of Government Accountability has released their statement in which they say that throughout the pandemic, the treasury and the IRS departments have gone through struggles to get their relief checks. Especially the vast number of households that were low income, experiencing homelessness or has limited access to the internet has caused the problem.
However the good news is, you can still claim that in the one month. The GAO statement have stated that people with low income and thus does not have to pay taxes have time until 15th of Nov to collect their stimulus check payments.
The website IRS for “Economic Benefit Payments,” the project’s official name, has instructions on how to file the claims for a missed stimulus check payment. To get the money, one must submit an efficient tax return.
