IRS Delaying Stimulus Checks of Americans in Need of Cash

irs

Kimberly Dyer was counting on her $1,700 stimulus check to help pay her bills after her work hours were reduced and her salary was cut in half because of the coronavirus pandemic.

But the check hasn’t arrived, even though the Internal Revenue Service’s “Get My Payment” tracking app says she’s eligible.

Neither has the $5,129 tax refund she is owed. The IRS has notified her that her 2019 tax returns are under review.

Dyer, a single mother and a social worker, suspects the two missing checks are connected. Hundreds of members of a Facebook group she created for people who haven’t gotten their stimulus check soon realized they had something else in common. They, too, have tax returns that are under audit or review.
