I didn't receive my 2nd stimulus payment so I claimed the credit on my 2020 taxes. The Stimulus check was mailed a week later. Will cashing the check delay my taxes?

Not sure if I cash it, if the IRS will just deduct it from the refund and send electronically or if it will delay the processing drastically? I would like to know before cashing the check.

You are fine, the IRS will deduct the check from your refund. You should cash the check you have.
