In Broward County, Florida, volunteer Richard Campillo (Richard Campillo) took the lead to help 220 homeless people register online by setting up a computer laboratory in the catering center. He said, but only about 30% of people actually received the money.
There may be many reasons, but government online tools often fail to explain why payments are pending. Campillo said that it may be necessary to make a call to the IRS hotline to find out why, even so, the agency still cannot verify a person’s identity.
He said: “I think the IRS has actually done a good job. But now they have to finish the battle.”
Some people have no legal qualifications at all, such as those who claim to rely on family members’ tax returns. Undocumented immigrants and their spouses who do not have a social security number but use a taxpayer’s ID number to pay Uncle Sam will also be excluded from the payment scope.
Earlier expenditures have increased
Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney (Carolyn Maloney) said at the housing supervision hearing last month: “It is clear that the IRS is not ready for this moment.”
She said some of her voters are still waiting for the money the government owes them, and condemned the Republican Party in Congress for cutting the agency’s budget for years.
However, a government supervision report found that the IRS had correctly calculated 98% of payments made as of June.
Have another chance in tax season
Those who miss the November 21 deadline can still receive stimulus funds next year after submitting their 2020 tax returns-but this will be a full year for Congress to formulate the plan.
If the new stimulus bill includes a second round of payments, lawmakers will have the opportunity to adjust the plan. According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, there is evidence that state governments have information on the risk of missing the first round of payments, about 75% of which are due to their participation in SNAP or Medicaid. But Congress did not specify that the data from these procedures can be used in the first place.
