How did you file 2017?  Did you do it by hand and mail it in?  Or buy the 2017 Desktop program?  I ask because you can't use the Online version and you can't efile it.  Online is only good for 2019 now but some people used it to do a prior year.

 

The IRS uses 2018 or 2019 to send the Stimulus Check.  If you didn't file those years you can sign up on the non-Filer page.  

Look up your status here or fill out a non-filers form
