Late Refund Check and Interest
September 2, 2020

If you sent a payment to IRS in the form of a paper check between March 1, 2020 and July 15, 2020 and your bank did not honor the check because of the date, IRS is providing some relief.

Because of Covid-19 it is taking longer for IRS to open the mail and deposit the checks.  Please be advised that interest and penalties may still apply, but if your bank refused to honor your check because IRS held it too long, you may get that portion of your penalty abated.
