$1.4bn of pandemic aid went to dead people

An investigation by the GAO has revealed that more than a million stimulus payments totaling $1.4 billion went to dead people. This came as the Treasury Department and IRS neglected to use death records to prevent payments going to the deceased. IRS counsel reportedly determined it did not have the legal authority to deny payments to those who filed a return for 2019, even if they were deceased.
