IRS Extends Stimulus-Check Deadline to Nov. 21

More than 110,000 Tennessee residents have yet to receive their stimulus payments, according to data from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. More than $100 million could be left unclaimed if residents don’t file their taxes.

Coordinator of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program at United Way of Greater Nashville Tamara Kreigh cited many reasons people don’t file.
“They just didn’t have the income, or perhaps they’re in that in-between area because of their age, they’re just coming out of school and didn’t work enough hours or earn enough to have a filing requirement,” Kreigh said.

The Internal Revenue Service recently extended the deadline to claim stimulus money to November 21. Individuals who make less than $66,000 a year can get free help filing their taxes and find out if they are eligible for a stimulus payment at GetYourRefund.org.
