Economic Impact Payment


An Economic Impact Payment made to someone who died, before the Payment was received, should be returned to the IRS. Return the entire Payment unless the Payment was made to joint filers and one spouse had not died before receipt of the Payment, in which case, you only need to return the portion of the Payment made on account of the decedent. This amount will be $1,200 unless adjusted gross income exceeded $150,000.
