Claim Your Federal Economic Impact Payment (EIP) by November 21st Deadline

NYS Tax Department alerts eligible New Yorkers to register for their payment ahead of November 21 deadline

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today encouraged New Yorkers who have not received their federal Economic Impact Payment to register to receive their payment on National EIP Registration Day, which was November 10.

Last month the IRS estimated about 538,000 New Yorkers still haven’t received their federal EIP. The registration deadline to get an Economic Impact Payment this year is Saturday, November 21, 2020.

Most tax filers have automatically received their payments, but those not obligated to file a tax return may need to register to receive their payment.

“This is money that matters to New York families,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Mike Schmidt. “Economic Impact Payments average $1,700 for New Yorkers and we’re glad to be part of this final push on National EIP Registration Day to ensure each person claims the payment they’re entitled to.”

Eligible individuals must use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool by November 21, 2020, to submit the necessary information to the IRS. New Yorkers who didn’t file a tax return in the past two years should use the Non-Filers tool to register with the IRS to get their money. You can also call the IRS EIP assistance line at call for assistance: (800) 919-9835 with questions on filing or receiving your payment.

The fastest and most convenient way to receive your payment is by direct deposit to your bank account. Otherwise you’ll receive a check. Beginning two weeks after they register, people can track the status of their payment using the Get My Payment tool, available on IRS.gov
