Between 9 million and 10 million taxpayers remain eligible for COVID-19 stimulus payments worth up to $3,200, but the deadline is today.

Through funds leftover from the child tax credit or COVID-19 relief stimulus checks, low-income United States citizens may be eligible for the considerable sum, according to the Government Accountability Office. If eligible, all they need to do is file simplified tax returns, the deadline for which has been extended to Tuesday, Nov. 15.

A person with an income below $75,000 and married couples with a combined income below $150,000 were eligible for all three waves of payments.
