You may not get your stimulus check on time, this is the dumb reason 43 |

Jackson Hewitt, a tax preparation company has said that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has sent stimulus checks out to 13 million bank accounts that shouldn't have received the funds. Many of these bank accounts are said to have been closed, or the owner of the account may not have direct access to it. The reason for the delay is that the IRS will have to retrieve these funds, and then send them out to the correct accounts.

The Jackson Hewitt website states, "The IRS has confirmed that processing issues will cause payment delays to many Americans waiting to receive this relief. It is estimated that the IRS inadvertently sent payments to over 13 million bank accounts that are no longer open or valid." For those wondering about the status of their stimulus check, you can check it out on the IRS website here. For more information on this story, visit this link here.
