IRS cancels uncollected stimulus checks sent to the dead

The government is canceling the uncollected coronavirus-related stimulus tests that were sent to the people who died.

The IRS noted the action on its website, saying it is the result of a determination that the deceased were not eligible for payments.

The IRS initially sent stimulus payments to more than 1 million people, according to the independent Government Accountability Office, because it did not believe that the law authorizing checks gave the agency the power to withhold them. The Treasury Department later intervened, and the government decided that the checks amounted to improper payments.
