The United States Treasury Department authorized the Internal Revenue Department (IRS) to send the first credits to those who already had a tax return in the years 2018 and 2019 and who had received refunds, reported Newspaper Las Americas.

This, with the intention of expedite economic stimulus payments and help Americans as quickly as possible from the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Around 80 million Americans had received economic impact payments on April 15, so the federal agency already had bank account information to make payments electronically.

The declarations of 2019 were taken into account and if you did not have the one of that year, the one of 2018 was assumed, in addition to retired people and those under 17 years of age with the right by the new law.

Now the counterproductive of these acts is that the money has reached some accounts of people who are deceased or who are simply not active, while thousands of others belonging to Social Security, many in need, still do not know when they will receive the money.

Without a doubt, this has created a wave of anger in a certain part of society, many people have lost their jobs throughout the nation and the article in Diario Las Américas reports that more than 1.500.000 have lost their jobs in Florida.

Disagreements in Florida

Many people who live in South Florida have called the media to try to find out when they will be able to receive their help.

In this sense, the aforementioned portal in its research note stated that according to information from the federal authorities, before April 24, the rest of the people with an account declared for direct deposit of the IRS they should get the money.

“I am a disabled veteran of the Gulf War,” Dwayne Ford of Kansas City told The Washington Post. "Low-income and disabled people, we should have gotten the money first, or paid all of us simultaneously."

In the last eight yearsResidents of South Florida have been hit hard by high rents, food prices, low wages, and the high cost of living in general.

“Dennis Akers' mother-in-law died in January. His 96-year-old mother died a month later. Akers had a joint checking account with each of them because he helped take care of her accounts. Both deceased women received direct deposit stimulus payments,” the Washington Post revealed. Cases like the above have also happened in Florida and in the rest of the country.
