IRS Economic Impact Payments – information on the $1,200 stimulus. There is a link to file a simple tax return if you haven’t filed taxes in 2018 or 2019 and you don’t receive social security retirement or disability (they don’t need to file to get the check because the government already has their direct deposit information). If you do get SSI or Social Security income and have children and haven’t filed taxes, you should fill out the quick tax filing.  www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
