The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is backing the U.S. Treasury Department in refuting the claim by the Washington Post that delivery of the coronavirus stimulus checks were being delayed in order to put President Donald Trump's name on them.

According to Law360, the IRS responded to the report - which cited unnamed officials - by assuring that the checks would be delivered "as planned" following the Trump administration's decision to include the president's name on them. 

Most stimulus checks are being deposited into accounts that have direct deposit information on file with the IRS. Those that don't are receiving paper checks.
