Level 3

Wondering how preparers are handling the stimulus payment reconciliation for couples who divorced in 2020?  I am running into several situations where stimulus was paid to one spouse based on the 2019 or 2018 return. In some cases, the ex-spouse paid half of the stimulus, none, or a portion of the full payment.

Not sure if the IRS is going to automatically attempt to reconcile with their records.  Can certainly document how the ex-spouses split the payment (or didn't) but don't want to automatically raise red flags.

Thanks for any thoughts/best practices.
