IRS Sent Stimulus Checks To Millions Of Dead People
One of the quirks of the coronavirus stimulus checks is who the money went to. Anyone who filed taxes in 2018 could be eligible for the payout.
Millions of those people have died. Relatives have seen funds pop into bank accounts or checks come to their mailboxes.
The unexpected money is not a gift. The IRS glitch has been noticed. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin would like people to send the payments back.
The IRS could charge penalties and interest on unreturned stimulus checks issued to the dearly departed.
