Those who filed their tax returns reporting unemployment compensaton before recent changes made by the American Rescue Plan, the IRS will correct the amount and any resulting tax overpayment will either be refunded or applied to other outstanding tax balances.  

The IRS has also stated that personal protective equipment (PPE) can de deducted from this year's tax returns as a medical expense.Furthermore, guidance is posted on their website on how to avoid errors on the tax return

Those who are homeless and/or do not have a bank account, or cannot afford a standard one, are still able to receive the Economic Impact Payment (EIP).  The IRS has posted information online on how these individuals can open a low-or no-cost account without a permanent address to file and claim a direct deposit of their EIP. Taxpayer's who don't have a valid social security number(SSN) but have a qualifying dependent with a valid SSN are still eligible to receive the second EIP for each qualifying dependent so long as they meet the other requirements.  This information is available in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Vietnamese.
