US Treasury Check Still Not Cashed.

Back in April I got stimulus money for me and my deceased DH.  It took 3 weeks to get instructions how to return it.

 

I chuckled because the instructions said to retirn the money IMMEDIATELY. Yeah, I connected someone right away about returning that for the money YOU SENT ME. lol

 

I got the return instructions via email on May 6th in late afternoon. I made the check out, per the instructions, with a note with DH name etc.  Took a picture of the check and sent it to my email.  I don't have a copier.  Got cert. of mailing went it was sent the next day, May 7th.

 

Next Friday Aug. 7th it will be 3 months since I sent it, they still have not cashed that dumb check.

 

Yeah, I know, virus has messed everything up but, geesh 3 months.

I would imagine the US Treasury is a bit busy these days.

@Tinkrbl44    They direct deposited $2400 into my account, I, rightly so, had to send back the $1200 they sent for my husband.  He died in May of 2019.

I know someone who still hasn't received their tax refund and it's been 5 months since they filed electronically!

@minkbunny  I know they are somewhat short handed but 3 months for something they wanted immediately seems like a long time.

@CrazyKittyLvr2 if I remember correctly we were talking about this the early part of May as I wrote and sent the refund back for my deceased MIL, wrote and sent check on May 6th- the check finally cleared on July 7th.. am looking at it right now.  Give it a little more time..  mine was sent to Chamblee, GA... they sure are slow but it will eventually get cashed..

@CrazyKittyLvr2   I agree that it seems like a long time but it is minuscule for the government. My kids told me that the motto when they were in the military was "Hurry up and wait"  so I wouldn't worry too much about it.  Smiley Happy

@CrazyKittyLvr2  I am surprised that it is taking so long, even with them being busy.  We always owe taxes; so, when I mailed our check on Monday and checked my bank account on Wednesday, they had already cashed it.  That surprised me.

 

Do not misplace your paperwork!

I always role my eyes whenever anyone puts the federal government in charge of ANYTHING.  Seems like there is always some problem or snafu.  They are just so inefficient, it's a crime.
