Dead People Are Getting $1200 Stimulus Checks, IRS 'Get My Payment' Tool Not Working for Many

It doesn’t matter if you’re alive or dead or an illegal alien (in California), you can receive a coronavirus stimulus check. Classic.

And Democrats still wonder why conservatives don’t want the government to control every aspect of our lives, huh? Yeah, real head-scratcher.

Check it out, via New York Post:

The federal stimulus checks received by millions of Americans Wednesday to help ease the economic windfall caused by the coronavirus pandemic were also sent to unexpected recipients — dead people.

Numerous Americans took to social media to share tales of the misdirected dough delivered as part of the $2.2 trillion bailout package passed by Congress last month, including Republican Congressman Thomas Massie.

Also wild (but probably expected), is that errors and long waits are preventing a lot of folks from tracking the status of their cash.

From CNBC:

A tool launched Wednesday by the Internal Revenue Service to track Americans’ stimulus relief checks is not working for many, according to individuals who reached out to CNBC Make It.

The Get My Payment tool is meant to give those eligible for a coronavirus stimulus check information on when they will receive their payment. Instead, many are receiving messages that their payment status is not available.
