Dozens of taxpayers in the United States have two weeks left to submit information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to receive outstanding checks of $ 500 for dependents of the first stimulus check.

Potential recipients have until September 30 to submit the data of minors in their custody through the tool “Non-filers” on the website of that office.

Eligible beneficiaries, according to the IRS, “include people with qualifying children who receive retirement, survivor or disability benefits from Social Security (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Railroad Retirement benefits, and Compensation and Pension benefits. Veterans Affairs (C&P) who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019. ”

“Given the extremely high demand for assistance related to economic impact payments, we continue to prioritize and increase the allocation of resources to eligible individuals, including those who may be expecting a portion of their payment. To help with this, we allocate additional resources from the IRS to ensure eligible recipients receive their full payments during this challenging time. ” Chuck Rettig, commissioner of the agency in a press entry in the middle of last month.

When the two-week deadline expires, the IRS will begin shipping the credits in October.

Users who submitted the information will be able to track the status of the payment through the “Get My Payment” service, also from the IRS website.

This initiative joins others of the agency to catch up with late payments such as the sending of some 50,000 economic impact payments to spouses who jointly declare to those who were mistakenly seized the money for support debt.

In theory, it is assumed that the entity finished with the distribution of the majority of stimulus checks. However, due to programmatic errors and failures in the process, it continues to process the help in some specific cases.

The IRS began the distribution, under the CARES Act, in mid-April with direct money deposits, followed by paper check shipments.
