Will IRS process the check if my niece wrote The United States Treasurer instead of The United States Treasury?

She thought she wrote the check to The United States Treasurer instead of The United States Treasury? So, is it a problem or will they deny it? Thanks.

    Yes, the BANK will process the check. The IRS won't even notice.

    Note: Technically, the Treasurer of the United States is the head of the Department of the Treasury, so it can be argued the difference isn't legally relevant.

    Actually, the IRS won't even SEE the check. The reason there is a different address for tax returns claiming a refund than for returns including a payment is the payments are actually sent to a bank, that processes the check and forwards the return to the IRS.

    Sure. It's pretty close. Not the first time.

  • If there's an issue, the IRS will return it to her with an explanation as to what the issue is.
