The Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT) has processed 10,268 EIP 2 checks totaling approximately $13.3 million.

EIP 2 was authorized by the COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020 (CRTRA).

Checks were transmitted to the Treasurer of Guam on Monday, January 25, and were mailed out earlier this week.

DRT will continue to process EIP 2 Program payments through March 19, 2021.

EIP 2 Program payments are based on validly filed and processed 2019 Guam Individual Income Tax Returns or for non-filers, validly filed and processed Forms EIP-NF filed by November 21, 2020.

You can find DRT’s FAQ on the Guam EIP Program in the COVID-19 section of the DRT website at https://www.guamtax.com/.

DRT’s call center numbers are 635-1840/41/42/57 and 635-7603/04/06.
