For the two previous stimulus checks given to taxpayers, the IRS built a web portal that allowed people who had not yet filed their taxes to submit their direct deposit information. However, it is not yet confirmed if the portal can be used for the third stimulus payment signed into law by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
As of March 12, 2021, the IRS web page on this subject says "2021 Economic Impact Payment Coming Soon. Check back soon for information on the 2021 Economic Impact Payment. We’re reviewing the tax provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021."
If the web portal opens again, or another method is made available for non-tax filers to submit information to get direct deposit of the upcoming American Rescue Plan payments, Affordable Housing Online will provide information, and/or a link to the IRS web portal.
Note: The Free File Fillable Forms website that is provided by the IRS is the only valid website where you can submit this information. If any other web page claims it can be used for this purpose, it is fraudulent.
