Tax Rebates and Stimulus Checks

Dead people are not eligible to receive an economic impact payment. The IRS says that if you got a stimulus payment for someone who died, you must return it. If the payment was made to joint filers and one spouse is still alive, you need to return only the decedent’s portion and can keep the remainder. See www.kiplinger.com/linke/deceased on how to send payment back to IRS.
