Economic Impact Payments

Here is the IRS’s Economic Impact Payment Information Center that should answer all questions regarding eligibility and action. The IRS is committed to helping you get your Economic Impact Payment as soon as possible. The payments, also referred to by some as stimulus payments, are automatic for most taxpayers. No further action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees.

Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info Here

If you don’t file taxes, use the "Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info Here" application to provide simple information so you can get your payment.


You should use this application if:
  • You did not file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return because your gross income was under $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples). This includes people who had no income.
    OR
  • You weren’t required to file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return for other reasons

If you receive these benefits, we already have your information and you will receive $1,200. Do not use this application if you receive:

  • Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI), or survivor benefits
  • Railroad Retirement and Survivor Benefits

Special note: People in these groups who have qualifying children under age 17 can use this application to claim the $500 payment per child.

This is my latest Telephone Town Hall with constituents from throughout the Second Congressional District of West Virginia to provide an update on the coronavirus response. I’m glad over 5,000 constituents joined my Telephone Town Hall on the coronavirus. I was proud to have expert guests on the call, and together, we answered a range of important questions from food shortages to antibody testing. It was incredibly valuable to hear so many voices from across my District tell their unique stories.

Joining me for the Town Hall were the following distinguished guests:

  • Dr. Tom Takubo, West Virginia Senate Majority Leader, R-Kanawha, and practicing physician
  • Dr. Matthew Simmons, Infectious Disease Expert at WVU
  • Paul Axelson, IRS Congressional District Liaison
  • Kim Donahue, West Virginia SBA Charleston Branch Manager
