The IRS has reversed course to eliminate a controversial requirement on Social Security recipients seeking stimulus checks as part of the government’s coronavirus response package.

After initially saying that Social Security recipients would have to file a “simple” tax return for 2019 — which they ordinarily would not do — the IRS now says the payment will be automatic without it.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return … will receive their payment directly to their bank account,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced Wednesday evening, noting that they will not have to take any action.

Mnuchin also announced on Twitter Thursday morning, .@SocialSecurity recipients don’t need to file a tax return to receive Economic Impact Payments. Recipients will receive these payments as a direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their benefits. Learn more here: https://t.co/czJSWcjAlt.”
