We determine non-perturbatively the fixed-point action for fermions in the two-dimensional U(1) gauge (Schwinger) model. This is done by iterating a block spin transformation in the background of non-compact gauge field configurations sampled according to the (perfect) Gaussian measure. The resulting action has 123 independent couplings, is bilinear in the Grassmann fields, gauge-invariant by considered the compact gauge transporters and localized within a 7× 7 lattice centered around one of
