The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced recently that around nine million Americans are about to receive stimulus checks and other extra money if they hit the deadline.
Who Will Receive the Stimulus Checks and Other Extra Money?
The IRS has already notified around nine million Americans that they are eligible to get another stimulus check. However, they need to hit the deadline on Nov.17. The agency also said that they began sending letters to eligible Americans in mid-October.
According to a published report in AL, those who will hit the deadline will receive the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit, the Child Tax Credit, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and other tax credits depending on their personal and family situation.
Moreover, those who have little to no income or are not required to file their taxes are also encouraged to claim their stimulus and other extra money.
How To Claim the Stimulus?
The IRS Free File will remain open until Nov. 17. They just need to visit IRS.gov/freefile and this enables people whose income is below $73,000 or less to file their return online for free.
Additionally, they can also visit ChildTaxCredit.gov to file their 2021 income tax return. Those single filers or individuals whose incomes are below $12,500 and married couples whose incomes are below $25,000 are encouraged to file a simple tax return to claim the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit.
If they can file and hit the deadline, they are expected to receive stimulus checks they have missed in 2021 and the Child Tax Credit.
