7161

The Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT) announces that the Ayuda I Mangafa Help for Families Program (AIM Program) will be implemented on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

The AIM Program’s Rules and Regulations were approved and signed into law on September 14, 2020. As required by Public Law 35-97, DRT has 15 working days from the effective date of the Rules and Regulations to implement the AIM Program. The AIM Program is intended to provide funding assistance to eligible Guam families with young adults, students and disabled individuals over the age of 16 years old who are claimed as dependents. These families with these dependents were overlooked under the CARES Act of 2020 and did not receive the economic impact payment (EIP) for these dependents.

Upon implementation of the AIM Program, eligible individuals will be able to file the Form 3594GU, Ayuda I Mangafa Help for Families Program Application, online at www.myguamtax.com or at the drop box at DRT’s Main Office in Barrigada. The AIM Program Application Packet will also be available on DRT’s website.

To file the Form 3594GU application online, individuals should go to www.myguamtax.com and register for an account or log in to their account in the Individual Login Section. After filing the application online, individuals must submit the required documents by email at mangafa@revtax.guam.gov or at the drop box at DRT’s Main Office in Barrigada. Eligible individuals are highly encouraged to file their application online and submit the required documents by email to ensure timely processing of the application and issuance of the AIM payment.

Individuals who utilize the drop box to file the Form 3594GU application and/or submit the required documents should perform the following:

  1. Place the documents in an enclosed envelope. Write “Attention: AIM Team” on the envelope.
  2. Include two copies of the application (one for the government and one for the applicant)
  3. Indicate the contact information: name, phone number and email address
  4. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope, if the individual would like DRT to mail a stamped copy of the application

For those individuals who may not have access to a computer, hard copies of the AIM Program Application Packet will be made available at the village Mayor’s Offices and the Guam Department of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities (DISID). We thank the Mayor’s Council of Guam Executive Director Angel Sablan, all our village Mayors and DISID Director Phyliss Leon Guerrero for assisting with this effort.
