It’s not too late to file a tax return to claim your missing stimulus money! The IRS extended the tax-filing deadline to May 17, 2021. Even after the deadline, you can still file to claim your money! If you do not owe any Federal taxes, then you can file your return after the deadline without a penalty - in fact, you have 3 years to claim your refund.

Outreach and Assistance Strategies

The coalition launched a website, www.GetMyPaymentIL.org, on Friday, May 1, that provides clear language about the EIP and how to access it. The site also includes information about safe banking products and tax-filing options. A telephone hotline opened in May to field questions.

The coalition works with government and nonprofit partners to spread the word online through websites, social media, and e-newsletters. The coalition will also provide flyers and posters to organizations still providing in-person, essential services and training for case managers.

Contact the coalition at Outreach@GetMyPaymentIL.org to discuss how your organization can help more Illinois residents access their stimulus checks.
