The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that it will be issuing out some catch-up payments to Americans this month.
These "catch-up payments" were originally included in the first coronavirus stimulus bill that was passed by Congress back in March. So, how is the IRS playing catch-up? Well, some Americans who received the first wave of coronavirus stimulus checks didn't have the $500 per eligible child included, and now the IRS is issuing out that payment.
If you are one of those Americans who received the first coronavirus stimulus check, but didn't get paid for your eligible children/child, the IRS has said that it will be issuing out these catch-up checks over the next couple of moths. Additionally, the IRS has said that it's reopening the registration period for people who didn't get their $500 per-child payments earlier this year. Lastly, the IRS has said Americans can use the IRS.gov Non-Filers tool through September 30 to apply for the additional $500 payments.
IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said, "IRS employees have been working non-stop to deliver more than 160 million Economic Impact Payments in record time. We have coordinated outreach efforts with thousands of community-based organizations and have provided materials in more than two dozen languages."
"Given the extremely high demand for EIP assistance, we have continued to prioritize and increase resource allocations to eligible individuals, including those who may be waiting on some portion of their payment. To help with this, we are allocating additional IRS resources to ensure eligible recipients receive their full payments during this challenging time."
