No Fixed Address
Without a fixed address, filing taxes -- and receiving the stimulus payment you're filing for -- is challenging, but not impossible. Free tax resources and trained volunteers can help determine which address would be best to include on tax forms, whether it be a PO box, or the address of a friend or relative. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau lists a number of options for IRS mail correspondence, including shelters, service providers or places of worship that hold mail for clients; friends or relatives; rented mailboxes or even, as a last resort, General Delivery, a USPS service which offers a temporary mailing address.
Prepaid Debit Card
Without bank account information, the IRS may issue stimulus payments in the form of Economic Impact Payment (EIP) cards. Information about EIP cards related to the most recent stimulus package is a viable option, the IRS will still need a physical address to send EIP debit cards.
