IRS Demands Payback of $600, $1,200 & $1,400 Stimulus Checks Benefits
Update: Should You Payback Stimulus Check Benefits to IRS?
The answer is NO. You shouldn’t? Biden administration is unable to pay stimulus checks to eligible Americans. If you’ve received the stimulus check, it’s outrageous of them to demand payback of stimulus checks starting from $600 to $1400.
If you’ve received a letter from IRS demanding payback of stimulus check, send us a screenshot at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll reach out to IRS for their comment & what would be the best course of action for the Americans.
For quite some time, IRS has been sending stimulus payments, tax refunds to eligible Americans. However, despite their claim, many eligible Americans are yet to get their due.
If that wasn’t enough, IRS is now sending out letters to Americans and demanding the payback of full or partial stimulus payments. These letters have been going out to the Americans residing in different states over the period of 3-4 weeks.
In the letters received, IRS is demanding payback of $600, $1,400, or $1,200 as reported in their 2020 tax returns. A Massachusetts resident named Natalie Bonelli received a letter from IRS demanding a $603.12 payment including tax.
She spoke with WCVB and said, “I panicked, Obviously, I don’t agree with it, and I can’t find anyone to help me actually do something about it.”
Despite making multiple attempts of contacting the IRS, she received no answers from them. Instead, later she got to know that a $600 stimulus check was emailed in her name at an address in New York.

However, she had moved out of that place, and the IRS then recommended Bonelli claim the missing check while filing for the 2020 tax return.
After doing everything as recommended, the IRS is now demanding money from her. She says, “Now I have to give back the money I never got, so it’s a little bit frustrating,”
Even though, IRS says that they can track down the payments sent to her.
However, this process isn’t as easy as it sounds.
You need to make a couple of calls to different IRS branches. The worst part is, you must do all this within 3 weeks.
What Should You Do?
With no doors open, the best recommendation to you would be to pay the total amount you’re supposed to pay and after that, request a trace and dispute whatever findings they generate, if inaccurate.
That’s all for now.
