Tips for Completing the Non-Filer form:

 Here is what you’ll need:

o Name, mailing address and an email address

o You will need to have immediate access to the email address to verify your account.

o Date of birth and valid Social Security number

o Bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one o Driver’s license or state-issued ID, if you have one

o For each qualifying child: name, Social Security number o Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) you received from the IRS earlier this year, if you have one

 

 Make sure you have access to the email address you are using! You’ll have to verify your email before you can fill out the form. If you can’t access your email, create a new one to use for this purpose that you can check immediately.

 

 Direct deposit payments come faster, are safer and are cheaper.

o Imagine how much the check cashers are going to charge to cash these checks!

o You can usually lookup or google routing numbers.

o If you don’t know your account number, try logging into your account online to find it or use their mobile app. Most credit unions or banks will not tell you your account number over the phone for security reasons. Since you can’t just stop into a branch to get your account number, you can call them and ask if they will mail it to you or send it to a verified email account.

 

 The more information you supply, the better. The more complete the form is, the easier and faster this process will be.

 

 The information is continuing to change daily so keep checking back with the IRS.
