Up to 64,000 Philadelphia households are eligible but have not yet received their federal stimulus payment through the CARES Act passed in late March. That adds up to an estimated $77 million in relief unclaimed by Philadelphia families. While most eligible taxpayers automatically received their stimulus payment this summer, some did not receive it because they need to complete a specific form for individuals not required to file taxes. Eligible Philadelphians who have not yet received their stimulus payment can submit their information by November 21, 2020 through the non-filers tool.
On Friday, October 30th at 12 noon the City of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Legal Assistance will host a virtual information session for individuals and community organizations on how to help residents claim their $1,200 federal stimulus payment by the November 21 deadline.
Information Session Speakers:
· Mitch Little, Executive Director, Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity, City of Philadelphia
· Anthony Marqusee, Paralegal, Low Income Tax Unit, Philadelphia Legal Assistance
Hosted by the City of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Legal Assistance
