According to Intuit TurboTax, a company that helps distribute payments, millions of COVID-19 quarantine aid payments have been diverted to the wrong customer accounts due to an IRS error. Writes about it Reuters.
Two banking sources have confirmed a mistake that will delay the distribution of needed financial aid.
“Those who have not received a direct deposit should monitor their mail for a paper check or card,” the IRS notice said.
Intuit TurboTax tweeted Wednesday: "Unfortunately, due to an IRS error, millions of payments were sent to the wrong accounts and some people never got paid."
One source said the IRS has used old information for millions of accounts that are considered closed or inactive. Banks are working with the IRS to return and redirect declined payments to the correct accounts, but it's unclear how long the process will take.
