The IRS reminds taxpayers that Economic Impact Payments will be distributed automatically to most people starting this week. Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 or 2018 will receive the payments automatically. Automatic payments will also go in the near future to those people receiving Social Security retirement, survivors, disability (SDDI), or survivor benefits and Railroad Retirement benefits.

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service launched a new web tool Friday allowing quick registration for Economic Impact Payments for those who don’t normally file a tax return. This provides a free and easy option designed for people who don’t have a return filing obligation, including those with too little income to file.
