My Mom died last year in May.

She just got her stimulus payment.

They need new programmers.

I assume no one has filed your late mother's tax returns for the 2019 tax year, so the IRS just goes by her 2018 record and does not know that she has passed away.

I suppose that means the IRS's algorithm just goes with what's in their tax returns database first, then later will traverse through the Social Security database after that are done processing everyone in the tax returns database. Shrug

Nope. I filed the final returns for her trust and for the estate, so her 2019 taxes are done.

SSA knows she's dead. So does the IRS.

Flat out error. Those boundary conditions will get you every time.

They're aware that dead people are getting checks - so far seem ok with it.

Thanks!

I figured they weren't going to come after the money, but the MarketWatch article is describing what Ax brought up, that they are looking at the most recent history they have.

In my Mom's case, there is a final return for the estate, so it means no one bothered to check a simple filing status code indicating that the person is deceased.

Regardless, it will be used as stimulus. We'll figure out a good place to donate it so it does someone in need some good.

One of our kids got their check, the other didn't. Fun times at Chez Nina Big Grin

Seriously, I can think of no reason why the other kid shouldn't get the money, but I may not understand the ground rules. He has earned income in both the US and Canada for 2019. Hmmmm.

Is out possible that one of your kids voted for Trump and you just didn't know about it? Evil

It was a direct deposit to an account for her trust.

I happened to check it because I’ve been waiting for the state to debit the account for what she owed in state income taxes. That was supposed to happen yesterday, and it did. That’s when I saw the stimulus money go in.

Usually if you get a check made out for someone who is deceased, you can request that it be reissued to the estate.

Have handled a couple of estates, but this is the First time for me doing one that involved a trust, so I’m kind of stumbling through it myself. Had an accountant do the tax returns. Wasn’t up to figuring out what needed to be done.

wtg, I am so sorry..I know my Mom struggled with the trust for my Dad long after he passed.

I talked to her today but didn't think to ask if she got hers.

My younger kids did immediately...I won't see it for sometime as I don't get refunds so my bank account is not registered...not that I am counting on it..
