Deceased receiving stimulus

Colmatt
Level 4

I have a couple clients that passed away in April, 2020, yes Covid-19, and received the stimulus.  My thoughts are that because this is really a prepayment of a 2020 tax credit, and they will be filing 2020 final returns,  than they, or their estate, are ok to keep the funds.   

 

Thanks in advance for your insight.

Sounds like pretty much anyone that has died in the last three years has received a check.  But like you said, since they died in 2020, they would be receiving the credit on their 2020 return so I would take the money and run.

Lots of deceased people getting the EIP...no guidance so far about whether this should have happened or not.
