Around 160 million economic impact payments have been distributed by the IRS. This is a feat that must be applauded! However, not everyone received their payments. In this podcast episode, I will discuss those who did not receive their payments – those who were explicitly mentioned in the statutory language, those who were added later by FAQs from the IRS, and those who were lost in the shuffle.

The former National Taxpayer Advocate, Nina Olson, wrote in Procedurally Taxing about how the IRS still has work to do to get economic impact payments to vulnerable taxpayers.
