News from the The IRS & Treasury Department

The IRS and Treasury Department announced an update on April 1, 2020. Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file an abbreviated tax return to receive an Economic Impact Payment. Instead, the IRS will use form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to generate a $1,200 Economic Impact Payment. (For these people that were not required to file a tax return in 2018 or 2019, the payment will automatically be issued and received by mail or direct deposit according to the method they receive their benefit.) Check out the link to their press release below (

Press Release 04/01/2020
