· Are federal benefit recipients as of Dec. 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 the 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.
