Am I a nonfiler?

The term "nonfiler" is sometimes used to refer to people who are not required to file a tax return and have not filed a tax return in the past few years. Most "nonfilers" are eligible for thousands of dollars in tax benefits from the Child Tax Credit, stimulus payments, and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

"Non-filer" is not a legal category—anyone can and should file a return, to claim the tax benefits available. By filing a tax return you are able to access thousands of dollars in tax benefits even if you make little to no money or do not usually file taxes.
