Advance Child Tax Credits are now available for people who did not file a tax return. If you did not file a return in 2019 or 2020, the IRS has developed the Non-filer Sign-up tool so you may still receive Advance Child Tax Credits.

You may have qualified for an Economic Impact Payment in 2020, also known as a “stimulus check,” of $1,200. If you didn’t receive your stimulus check in 2020, you may be able to claim the payment as the Recovery Rebate Tax Credit on your tax return filed in 2021 for Tax Year 2020. Must bring your “Notice letter 1444” you received from the IRS.

Winter storm disaster relief for Louisiana and Texas

Earlier this year, following the disaster declarations issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the IRS announced relief for victims of the February winter storms in Texas and Louisiana. These states have until June 15, 2021, to file various individual and business tax returns and make tax payments. This extension to May 17 does not affect the June deadline.
