Susanne Wigforss, a Swedish citizen who lives in Stockholm, said of the coronavirus stimulus check she received due to an IRS error. Wigforss is not a “resident alien” but worked in California for several years and so receives a small Social Security payment, which is what triggered the IRS error. The U.S. government is unable to estimate how much money was erroneously spent in stimulus checks for non-eligible people. (NPR — November 30, 2020)
