If you file a tax return and claim dependents, yes, you'll get $500 for the dependents.

 

However, if you typically aren't required to file a tax return, this is what the IRS has on their website: 

  • Since the IRS would not have information regarding any dependents for these people, each person would receive $1,200 per person, without the additional amount for any dependents at this time.

If this changes and/or we get any additional information, we'll post it on the TurboTax Corona Virus Tax Center Updates.

I have filed taxes before in 2018 I did for when I worked in 2017. Not sure if that would count in the system.

If you are not filing a 2019 tax return and you are not required to file a tax return and you do not receive Social Security benefits, then use this TurboTax website to register for the stimulus - https://turbotax.intuit.com/stimulus-check/

 

Social Security Retirement/Disability/Survivors benefits are reported on a form SSA-1099

If you receive Social Security benefits, see this US Treasury website - https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm967

 

See this IRS website for stimulus payment information - https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center
