The Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation has processed a second batch of EIP 3 Program payments which will be transmitted to the Treasurer of Guam Wednesday morning.

Approximately 10,000 payments totaling $35,127,767 were processed and will be paid by either paper check or direct deposit. To date, a total of $88.97 million in EIP 3 payments have been processed.

DRT will continue to process payments as quickly as possible and will provide updated information to the community as payments are processed.

DRT received notification of the approval of Guam’s Third Economic Impact Payment (EIP 3) Plan on Saturday, April 10, 2021, and processed approximately 20,000 payments totaling $53.84 million on that day.

EIP 3 was authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 which was signed into
law by President Biden on March 11, 2021.

Most eligible people will get the third Economic Impact Payment automatically and won’t need to take additional action. DRT will use available information to determine eligibility and issue the EIP 3 payment to eligible people who:

• Have a validly filed and processed 2020 tax return
• Have a validly filed and processed 2019 tax return if the 2020 return has not been
submitted or is not validly processed yet

• Did not file a 2020 or 2019 tax return but filed an Economic Impact Payment for Non-
Filers (EIP-NF) form on or before November 21, 2020.

• Are federal benefit recipients as of December 31, 2020 who do not usually file a tax return and received Social Security and Railroad Retirement Board benefits, Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) and Veteran benefit recipients in 2020. DRT will use information
provided from the IRS to determine eligibility for EIP-3.

DRT has launched its EIP 3 Lookup Portal at www.myguamtax.com. The EIP Lookup Portal will allow for taxpayers to obtain information on their EIP 1, EIP 2, and EIP 3 Program payments.

You can find DRT’s FAQ on the Guam EIP 3 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. Due to high call volumes, however, DRT recommends e-mailing general questions regarding the Guam EIP Program to guameip@revtax.guam.gov.
