Americans can STILL get missing $500 from first coronavirus stimulus as IRS reopens claim window

AMERICANS can still get $500 from the first coronavirus stimulus check because the IRS reopened the claim window.

Families who missed out on amount for eligible dependents can claim the $500 using the non-filter tool from August 15 through September 30.

People who fail to meet the deadline will have to wait until next year to receive the remainder of the stimulus check payout.

People who receive get the $500 cash they're owed for a dependent are usually individuals who don't have to file tax returns, the IRS said.

"Given the extremely high demand for EIP assistance, we have continued to prioritize and increase resource allocations to eligible individuals, including those who may be waiting on some portion of their payment,” IRS commissioner Charles Rettig told Fox Business.

“To help with this, we are allocating additional IRS resources to ensure eligible recipients receive their full payments during this challenging time."

The tax agency, headed by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, said people who give their information during the specified time period window will get the payment by mid-October.

But individuals who provided their details back in May don't need to do anything else and will also get a payout by fall.

People who haven't gotten a stimulus payment at all may need to fill out the non-filers tool by October 15 to get a check this year.

Many families did not receive the $500 they were due for dependents under the age of 17 nder the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Washington Post reported.

Meanwhile, a second round of coronavirus checks could arrive soon after the House was recalled on Monday for a vote on the Postal Service.

The second round of $1,200 checks have been held up after talks stalled as Democrats and Republicans clashed over the package.

One of the sticking points was the USPS – with Donald Trump threatening to block a stimulus bill that included emergency funding for the service.

A vote on the Post Office bill could take place as early as Saturday, meaning the stimulus deadlock could soon be over.
