Stimulus Check Information for Library Patrons

April 8, 2021

Many Illinoisans who need financial help the most STILL have not received their first and/or second stimulus check(s). Get My Payment Illinois, a coalition of Illinois non-profits, can help! Your patrons can get more information through:

Do you need paper flyers about the stimulus checks and the assistance available from the Get My Payment Illinois Coalition for your library or office?  Please use this form to request flyers.
Do you need paper tax return instruction packets so your patrons can file and request their stimulus payments via the Recovery Rebate Credit? Please use this form to request tax packets.

Do you need paper instructions for federal tax returns so your patrons can file and receive their stimulus payments? Please use this form to request tax packets.

(If you are helping a patron who cannot file online, the instructions for how to complete a paper 1040 and a link to the blank Form 1040 are on the "For Nonprofit Partners" page of our website ( in the final section, "Support for Digital Divide, Homeless, or Other High Barrier Populations".)
