If I am not required to file a tax return, am I eligible for a stimulus payment?

This pertains to senior citizens, Social Security recipients and railroad retirees. If you fall into one of these categories, you will be getting a $1,200 per person.

If a taxpayer is unsure they’re receiving a legitimate letter, the IRS urges taxpayers to visit IRS.gov first to protect against scam artists.
