Yes. If you filed in 2018 or 2019, the IRS has your information and it is accurate, then there is no worry. If your 2019 shows a new address and new bank account, you will want to continue with filing your return. You would receive the stimulus payment based on your 2018 information if you do not file.

I didn't file in 2018, and I have yet to fix the issue with my 2019 return. I have tried 6 times unsuccessfully.

Here's how you can fix it:

Sign in to your account and select the Fix my return button. Follow any “fix it” instructions to update the information causing the rejection.

 

Note: Not all rejections will have explicit guides to fix the information. You’ll need to navigate to the program area to address the cause of the rejection.

 

Time-saving Tip: If what you originally entered is correct, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, a dependent that's already been claimed, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed. In this case, your only option would be to print and mail in your return. This article will give you instruction on how to print and mail your return.
