IRS canceling uncashed stimulus checks sent to the dead

The government is canceling uncashed coronavirus-related stimulus checks that were sent to people who died.

The IRS noted the action on its website, saying it is a result of a determination that the departed were not eligible for the 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 the law authorizing the checks gave the agency the power to withhold them. The Treasury Department later intervened, and the government decided the checks amounted to improper payments.
