People Experiencing Homelessness May Qualify for an Economic Impact Payment (COVID Tax Tip)

People experiencing homelessness may be eligible for a $1,200 Economic Impact Payment and $500 for each qualifying child under age 17. To get this payment, they must register with the IRS by Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020.

If someone’s income is below $12,200, or $24,400 if they’re married, they probably don’t file a tax return. That means the IRS may not have enough information to issue their payment.
