Incentive payments. $ 1.4 billion paid to deceased in the US

The US Treasury paid dead people about $ 1.4 billion in incentive payments, according to Argumenti.ru with reference to The Guardian.

It is noted that the corresponding error was identified during the financial audit, which took place a month ago.

“According to the General Inspector of the Treasury for Tax Administration, as of April 30, 2020, nearly 1.1 million payments totaling almost 1.4 billion dollars were received by the deceased,” the audit said.

Payments were sent as financial assistance in a pandemic, they have already been recognized as erroneous. The tax office asked the Americans to return the checks sent to the dead.
