SYRACUSE, NY— U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today announced details for a virtual workshop on Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) via Zoom on Friday, September 4, 2020 at 10:30am. Rep. Katko will be joined by a representative from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Together, they will answer questions from Central New Yorkers, provide information and resources on EIPs, and discuss the status of taxpayer services amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals must RSVP for the Zoom meeting information.

“In the CARES Act, Congress authorized the distribution of Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) to provide immediate, direct relief to working families during this crisis,” said Rep. Katko. “While thousands of Central New Yorkers have already received an EIP, I continue to hear from those who have struggled to access their payment. That’s why, on Friday, I’m hosting an EIP workshop with a representative from the IRS. We’ll also address issues with the delivery of 2019 tax returns and discuss the status of taxpayer services amid the pandemic. I encourage anyone who is experiencing difficulty receiving the relief they are due to sign up for this important workshop.”

Details are as follows:
