Most eligible taxpayers don’t need to take any action to receive an Economic Impact Payment from the federal government. However if you haven’t filed a tax return for either 2018 or 2019 – you should complete a 2019 return to get the $1200 payment (if you made less than $75,000) Taxpayers should file electronically and include direct deposit banking information. Others who don’t normally file—including those with low income or no income—should visit IRS dot gov to learn about how to sign up for your payment (https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments)
