The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has taken steps to help American taxpayers during the global COVID-19 pandemic. U.S. citizens living in Kuwait may qualify for the Economic Impact Payment program.
As a reminder, if you believe you are entitled to an economic payment AND have not received a direct deposit AND you listed a local Kuwaiti address as your mailing address on your most recent tax return, please visit this IRS webpage and click the “Get My Payment” button. If the result indicates that a check was mailed to you, the check may have been mailed to the Embassy.
If you have not already done so, please complete this form by Monday, June 22 if you believe your check was mailed to the Embassy. Please do not complete the form again if you have already submitted your response. We will use the information to confirm if your payment was delivered to the Embassy and will schedule a time for you to pick it up. Please allow for up to one week for Embassy staff to contact you. Any unclaimed checks will be returned to the IRS after 90 days if no response is received.
Please visit the IRS Economic Impact Payments website for updated information regarding these payments and other tax information.
