WASHINGTON – The IRS is racing to reach people who haven’t gotten their stimulus checks yet.

The deadline is November 21. The agency says it sent nine million letters in September to people who may have missed out on the $1,200 payment.






Most eligible Americans received their checks automatically during the spring and summer, but those who don’t normally file tax returns, have to register online.

About 12 million people fall into that category, about 8 million have registered online, but the IRS declined to say how many payments have gone out to non-filers.





For anyone who misses the November 21 deadline, you can still get your stimulus money next year, after filing your 2020 tax returns.
