Newest Info on 2020 Stimulus and Decedents

Rebecca Martin, CPA

Anyone who was alive as of 1/1/2020 was entitled to both 2020 stimulus checks.  If the decedent before date of death or if the "estate" after did not receive both the $1200 & $600, you can take the recovery rebate credits on their final 1040/last joint return with surviving spouse.
Anyone who died in 2018 or 2019, the estate or surviving spouse should return the decedent’s share of payments.
For the 2021 recent stimulus, date of death before 1/1/2021, were not eligible and those checks/direct deposit should be returned.  If they were alive as of 1/1/2021, the estate/surviving spouse can keep the funds.
