Currently, the IRS will require individuals in Social Security or Disability, who do not typically require tax returns, to file a return or they will not receive their stimulus check. 

This is an unfair and unnecessary step. It places an added burden on our elderly and disabled citizens to leave the safety of their homes, and pay a preparer to file a tax return. Those who do not will not receive a stimulus check, something that these individuals desperately need in these uncertain times. Many of these very vulnerable individuals have limited access to information, the internet and television, etc., especially in these hard times. With Social Distancing measures, they do not have access to the word-of-mouth passage of information that so many rely on. Too many of this vulnerable group of people will fall through the cracks, not knowing they need to file, and not receiving the economic relief they so deserve.

Please sign this petition to ask the IRS and the Department of Treasury to use these individuals’ Social Security Benefits statement in order to determine their eligibility. Please sign this petition urging them to NOT force elderly and disabled individuals to leave their homes and risk exposure just to file an unnecessary return in order to receive an economic relief payment. 

Protect our elderly and disabled! Provide them a stimulus payment without forcing them to file a return!
