Stimulus Checks: People Who Don’t File Taxes Can Register Their Bank Info With IRS via TurboTax Online Portal To Get Their $1,200

IRS partnered with TurboTax to offer a free registration portal for those who aren’t required to file taxes and don’t receive Social Security benefits to get their $1,200 stimulus money. You’re essentially filing a minimal tax return just to get your deposit info to the government. Don’t use this option if you owe taxes and plan to file a regular tax return.

Direct Link to TurboTax Registration Link

Non-filers can provide their bank account details or mailing address and choose how they want to receive their stimulus check. Direct deposit to your bank is the quicker option as those are slated to go out as soon as April 9, while checks won’t be mailed until April 24. (Business Insider)

The IRS promises, “In the coming weeks, Treasury plans to develop a web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail.” That’s a different portal from this TurboTax option. That one will work for updating deposit information; I’m unsure if it’ll work for inputing info for those who haven’t ever filed taxes. This TurboTax portal works for those who have never filed taxes.

One of the most frequently asked questions by readers was what to do for those who never filed taxes. This is relevant for many scenarios, especially young adults or students who may be independents, but don’t have much income and never filed a tax return. It’s now easy to input your bank info or mailing address.

Hi, I have not filed taxes for 2018 and 2019. Im also having issue with e-File. What can I do to get my stimulus check? What’s my best approach?

As of now, I’m going to have to do my tax returns by mail because my birthday is not match with the IRS. Will I get my stimus check late?

Should I sign up as non filer on IRS website and provide them my direct deposit banking info on https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments?

Seems to be the same system so you will be rejected there too. I’m having the same birthday mismatch issue, which I have a hard time believing is the real reason, they probably don’t want to send payments without enough of a paper trail (or their system is just broken)

If I already used the turbotax link, do I need to do it again on the IRS web portal?

Wouldn’t think so since they’d have your bank info from Turbotax

Looney Tunes I need at least a few more weeks to file my 2019 tax return (they extended the deadline to July)… My question (and this is a question for anyone) is for those of us who earned less than $10,000 in 2019.. my income was mostly bank bonuses (1099s), interest, and about $2,000 in self-employment.. should / can we use this tool to get our $1,200 deposit.. and then later on file our 2019 tax return?

Did you file in 2018?

It says individuals who filed a federal income tax for 2018 or 2019 will automatically receive the payment so shouldn’t fill out the form using the link.

nope.. did’t do 2018 or 2019.. income was also low in 2018 (under 10k)

Confused about where you say you need more time to file you 2019 taxes but then you say you earned less than $10k so you wouldn’t have to file for 2019. Why would you file then?

In any event, I’d think you’d be okay to use the link to give them your info since they don’t currently have it, at least I would given the same situation.

mostly because of self-employment.. since I’m around $2,000 in 2019 which is over the $400 requirement.. so it looks like later on.. once I have all the documents together I should file for 2019

When’s the deadline to file 2019 taxes and how do we add our banking info to get our stimulus check via direct deposit?

So had a refund into bank account in 2018 but had to pay in 2019 so e-filed to have them take funds out of a different bank account on April 15, but went into the IRS payment site and cancelled that payment at this point since not required to pay it now until July 15. Wondering if anyone can predict if we will get a direct deposit to which bank account or should we expect to wait for a paper check?
