People who have no income at all are eligible to get stimulus checks. People with low income are eligible to get stimulus checks. Homeless people are eligible to get stimulus checks. And, yes, people who aren’t legally required to file federal taxes can get a $1,200 stimulus check.
I read a comment on a Facebook post yesterday that told low-income people that they aren’t eligible to get stimulus checks because they didn’t pay taxes. The post went on to say that the only people who can get the $1,200 stimulus checks are those who have actually paid taxes into the federal system. This is false and incorrect information. Here’s the truth.
The IRS is urging people with little and no income to sign up for a stimulus check.
Just Friday, IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said, “The IRS is working hard to find new ways for people who don’t have a filing requirement to receive their Economic Impact Payment.” The Economic Impact Payment is the government’s official name for stimulus check.

- You have an adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less if single; $112,500 or less if head of household; $150,000 or less if married filing a joint return.
- Reduced payments are available for those who earn more than the above amounts but still earn less than $99,000 per year or less for individuals, $136,500 per year or less for head of household and $198,000 per year or less for married filing jointly.
What is the Non-Filers tool?
In order to learn if you can get a stimulus check and to register to get one, you need to use the Non-Filers tool which was specifically created so that low-income (and no-income) U.S. citizens and qualifying resident aliens can register to get a stimulus check. The Non-Filers tool is free, and it provides a place for people who…
