The IRS says as many as 9 million Americans have not claimed their coronavirus relief checks.

Those who are eligible for checks will revive a letter later this month from the IRS making them aware of their check. On Tuesday, the federal agency said the unclaimed checks mostly pertain to people who usually don’t file a federal income tax return.

The IRS has made an unprecedented outreach effort to make sure people are aware of their potential eligibility for an Economic Impact Payment this year,” said Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “Millions who don’t normally file a tax return have already registered and received a payment. We are taking this extra step to help Americans who may not know they could be eligible for this payment or don’t know how to register for one. People who aren’t required to file a tax return can quickly register on IRS.gov and still get their money this year.”

The IRS said people have until Oct. 15 to register via the agency’s website to receive their payments by year’s end. Hmmmm.... Wonder if they'll donate to us all the  unclaimed checks at the end of the year. Wishful thinking, huh.....
