Project BRAVO: Deadline for IRS Economic Impact “Stimulus” payment filing approaching

Project BRAVO is partnering with the IRS to provide vital information to the community on how people who have not received their EIP can claim their stimulus check before the deadline.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) mailed 9 million letters in September to non-filers who have not collected their CARES Act Economic Impact Payment (a.k.a. “stimulus check”).

The deadline for eligible people to claim their Economic Impact Payment (EIP) is November 26, 2020.

Project BRAVO is hosting two virtual presentations, English and Spanish, simultaneously through Zoom and Facebook Live for the Borderland community.

IRS staff will provide information on who is eligible for the EIP, how to recognize scams related to the EIP, and step-by-step instructions on how to use the Non-Filer tool to claim payments before the November 21st deadline.

“The presentation is targeted to households that have not claimed their EIP and are low-income, on public assistance, moved after April or became homeless due to the pandemic, and/or did not file for income taxes in 2019,” Project Bravo officials shared.

“Social service providers such as nonprofits, faith based organizations, homeless shelters, and government agencies are especially encouraged to attend so they can pass on this vital information.”

Participants can ask questions directly to the IRS through the Zoom platform or by commenting during the Facebook Live sessions.
