It has been months since the IRS starting sending out economic impact payments to help curb the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Still, many around the U.S. have not received their payments. Many of those people have social media, and are, of course, making their frustrations known.
The IRS's Twitter account, @IRSnews, has become a particular magnet for hatred and anger. Twitter users that are experiencing delays or technical errors related to their payments are fuming and are regularly bashing the government entity. Furthermore, some people excluded from eligibility are also calling out the IRS, even though the IRS did not determine the criteria for payment. (Congress did.) Scroll through to see some of the heated reactions from frustrated Twitter users.
Well, it's been a week & still nothing from @IRSnews about my son's nonfiler stimulus check/status.
I asked him to stay home (not work) & help me after my husband passed away...
He/we need the help just like everyone else.

So what was the point in including our direct deposit information since 04/17 sent it to some random as bank account?? Cant get ahold of anyone at IRS BS recycles on an Automated recording. IRS will not get any more of my $ until I get what is promised to all who got it.— @investwithmikemyers (@mikemyerslives) June 20, 2020
Help! @IRSnews IRS we did not receive our stimulus. I have sent two emails to your covid relief message board to no avail. Please help me talk to a covid relief agent. #COVIDreliefIRS pic.twitter.com/Ho8SqfZexZ— Vivere Ridere Amore 🇮🇹 🇱🇷 (@thelsns) June 20, 2020
