About this Deal
Roughly 9 million people across the country are receiving letters from the IRS about how to claim those missing stimulus checks.
Millions of people, many living on limited incomes, have yet to get their hands on money that could help pay the rent, cover grocery bills, handle car repairs and pay for other essentials.
And they've been waiting and waiting ever since the Economic Impact Payments began rolling out five months ago.
Now, they're looking at a looming Oct. 15 deadline — if they don't want to wait well into 2021 to get their money.
How many people haven't received those payments yet is debatable. The Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Treasury do not know how many eligible people have yet to receive a stimulus payment, according to a new report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.
"Not everyone eligible was able to be initially identified," the GAO report stated.
The GAO noted the U.S. Treasury and the IRS have issued stimulus payments to all eligible individuals for whom IRS has the necessary information to do so.
