My dead uncle received a stimulus check, made out to him as:
Uncle's Name, Deceased
Sign it and cash it... then sign him up to vote for a democrat in the next election...
It got sent back. I told my mother she should have deposited to his estate...but she's a little more honest than I am, I guess.
Actually, if his interest in the stimulus check vested while he was still alive, it might be appropriate to put the funds into the estate account. check with the estate attorney and/or tax attorney. so might not be an honesty issue...might be a throwing away money issue.
Hey, you're right, I just googled it. It should go to the estate. Ha, that should be fun getting it back.
Good luck. lol....
The dead have just as much right to the stimulus checks as they do to vote in most elections.
that's not why the estate might be entitled to the check.
I am extremely mad that I will not be getting a stimulus check even though I qualify to get one. Because my mom didn't understand the rules when she filed our taxes, she claimed me on hers and on mine as a depenant. In order for a depenant to qualify for the $300, you must be under 17 years old. I am 19. The IRS should have made this more clear so that the college age people, who are the ones who can use this money to help with college expenses and possibly help the economy, would get the money they deserve! If anyone knows any way that I can do something about it, please let me know!
Well, for one, if you're 19, and you can't be claimed as a dependent, file your own taxes. Second, it's not money you "deserve". You haven't earned it.. Third, your mother seems to be trying to rip the IRS off, since she's trying to claim you twice.
Save your own ass, contact the IRS, and get your taxes filed properly, because any interest you get charged for fucking up is going to likely be far and above that measly $300.
