- The Social Security Administration provided the IRS with payment information that could help get $1,400 stimulus checks to 30 million people.
- The transfer of information comes after Democratic leaders on the House Ways and Means Committee gave the Social Security Administration a 24-hour deadline.
- “Now the IRS needs to do its job and get these overdue payments out to suffering Americans,” the leaders said in a statement.
The Social Security Administration has sent information to the IRS that will help clear the way for almost 30 million people to receive their $1,400 stimulus checks, lawmakers said on Thursday.
The development comes after Democratic leaders on the House Ways and Means Committee gave the agency 24 hours to turn over the payment information so that the IRS could process the payments.
In a statement, the lawmakers, led by House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal, D-Mass., blamed Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul for the delays, which “defied congressional intent and imposed needless anxiety and pain on taxpayers.”
