*Attorney Antonio Moore discusses the coronavirus stimulus roll out and the impact it is having on American families.
Moore looks at local stories from across the country to show issues that have been faced in getting the IRS federal stimulus.
In particular, he reviews the newest story out of Augusta Georgia exposing issues with tax advance payments and how they are impacting stimulus disbursement.
Some were expecting relief from their stimulus check today, but people who filed their taxes through a business with a history of legal complaints are worried their stimulus money was being withheld. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office and the IRS arrived at Citi Tax Financial to investigate, but they found no wrongdoing. And a hold-up with money may be a problem for tax preparers all over the country. Dozens of families were here saying they got a notification their stimulus was deposited but when they looked at the account it went to, they say it was not their account. That’s why they showed up in numbers at Citi Tax.
Moore also shows key items that are needed to be prepared as a family from flashlights to water among other things.
