is the I.R.S. going to be able to find out who is not filing their taxes now after the stimulus carrot they are offering?

why or not? maybe that is why i keep reading about people "not getting their stimulus checks"? it only goes to people who regularly file their taxes?

Update:

WHY WOULD THEY NOT KNOW ALREADY WHO IS HIDING UNREPORTED INCOME?>

    They already know that.   What they don't know is who among those is hiding unreported income.  

    Edit - they don't know because it's paid "under the table" without the employer filing a 1099 form.  

    But sometimes they find out and that's a dark day for those un-reporters.

    The IRS already knows who's not paying their taxes and in most cases such people receive regular threat letters from that agency.

    If you are being paid for a job with a legitimate payroll system, you will eventually get caught if you don’t pay your taxes. And those doing it don’t realize that the longer it takes to get caught. The worse it will be for them. Taxes are part of being a citizen. If you don’t want to pay taxes, give up your citizenship. And stop enjoying the benefits of citizenship. Like schools, roads, hospitals, public water systems, the power grid, cell phones, internet, grocery stores, etc. etc. etc. Go live in the mountains off the grid or in some jungle somewhere. And live a primitive lifestyle of getting your own food and water from your environment. Good luck.
