    From what I have been reading, we may not get a stimulus payment. My wife and I are on SS. Last year we did not file taxes since after doing the calculations, we would not owe anything, nor get anything back. So we did not file. And have heard no complaints from the IRS a year later. I have read that the stimulus payments will come through the IRS based on last years tax return. So what should we do to get our fair share?
