If that headline was a little confusing that is because somehow the tax services in America ended up with a ton of relief checks instead of the other way around. According to CNN, Turbo Tax has announced that people who normally use their service and their check ended up there are experiencing delays in getting their money all together.
Somehow Turbo Tax (and this also applies to H&R Block) ended up with a ton of stimulus payments into their corporate accounts that are temporary accounts created for users. It is unclear where the error in distribution may have happened but of course it has riled social media up.
“Stimulus payments will begin to be deposited on January 8th for millions of our customers affected by the IRS error,” the company wrote on its blog. “We expect most of these payments to be available that day, but banks could take a few business days to process.”
