China News Service, April 13 (Xinhua, China) reported that this week, the Treasury Department and the IRS launched a portal website mainly aimed at those who do not report tax because they have no taxable income.
The website requires applicants to submit some basic financial information to confirm eligibility for government payments. At the same time, the website also helps accelerate the delivery of grants to eligible individuals by obtaining personal bank account information, including bank account types, accounts and routing numbers.
For families struggling with the lockout caused by the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the government's one-time subsidy may be a lot of money.
The government will pay most people's subsidies based on the 2018 or 2019 tax returns.
In addition, this new portal will help people who meet the following three criteria: recipients of social security retirement, survivors or disability benefits, people who did not submit tax returns for 2018 or 2019, and people who have children under the age of 17 who need support .
In a statement, the US Social Security Administration (SSA) stated: “By actively entering information on the IRS website and their eligible children, in addition to receiving a personal income of $ 1,200, each dependent child will also receive $ 500 in income. "
In addition, individuals who receive additional guaranteed income (SSI) are encouraged to use the portal to submit documents on behalf of any eligible children.
SSA said: "For those SSI recipients who do not have eligible children under the age of 17, we will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Finance to make these payments automatically."
People who are only beginning to enjoy social security or SSI benefits in 2020, and those who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019, should also use this portal.
The announcement supplements previous guidance that if SSA-1099 social security retirees, survivors, or disabled beneficiaries receive SSA-1099 in 2019, if there are no eligible children under the age of 17, they will not have to do anything.
