This special edition of Outreach Connection is dedicated to resources and materials aimed to help reach millions of low-income people, the homeless and others who aren’t required to file a tax return but may be eligible for an Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 or more.
The IRS needs your help in getting this critical information to as many people as possible before the October 15, 2020 deadline to use a special Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov. To help you do this, the IRS has created a variety of special materials, including a new partner toolkit.
The IRS asks for help reaching special key groups, including:
• Lower-income households without a filing requirement
o Individuals with income below $12,200
o Married couples with income below $24,400
• People with no income
• Part-time workers
• Self-employed people
• People who work in the gig economy
• People experiencing homelessness
• Students who can’t be claimed as dependents on someone else’s tax return
