Government Stimulus Make sure you will qualify for the government stimulus program. The following are situations where you need to act ASAP to receive the stimulus:

  • You haven't filed your 2019 1040 tax return and the adjusted earned income reported on your 2018 tax return disqualifies you --- but you think you may qualify with your 2019 tax return.
  • You haven't filed taxes for 2018 or 2019. However, if you receive social security or railroad retirement benefits you do not need to file.
