If the deceased owed the IRS can the IRS garnish the surviving widow SS survivor benefits?
Generaly not unless there is a jointly filed return. There are special circumstances ie. community property states and transfers of estate property to the surviving spouse.

If the insured owed money to the IRS can the IRS go after the benefits left to a child to repay the deceased parent's debts?
Life Insurance Answer . \nThat is one of the purposes of life insurance. The answer however is no, it would come out of the parents estate. If there is no estate than th…e gov could be SOL. BUT!!! It may behoove a child (depending on age) to settle the tab with all creditors and the IRS on behalf of the parent settling the estate with the insurance money rather than relying on a "fire sale" of the estate, and reaping the benefits of the estate at it's market value rather than a forced sale value....depending on the situation tho... 4lifeguild
No, death benefits from a life insurance policy which has a named beneficiary is not subject to attachment by the IRS, state tax officials, judgment creditors, etc.
Disability (including Social Security Disability) generally cannot be garnished.. Just about everything else is fair game.
If this person was a spouse, see this article: http://irsmind.blogspot.com/2008/07/q-filing-return-for-deceased-spouse.html Hope that helps! Andrea http://www.TaxFa…cts4U.com
NO! NO! NO! YES! NO!
When you owe the IRS back taxes , the IRS has to follow collection due process to collect your taxes. They start by sending you balance due notices and work up to levy notice…s. If you do not respond to them, the IRS will issue a wage levy, 668w, to your employer to collect your back taxes. You can stop a levy by getting into a resolution on your back taxes.

The trustee of his estate must handle anything financial - including resolving his taxes before disributing anything to any heir.
The IRS is one of the biggest collection agencies in the world. Because of it's power, it can assess garnishments on paychecks, place liens on properties, and levy bank accoun…ts, essentially clearing them out. It's best to set up an Installment Agreement or use other options, such as an Offer In Compromise if you have a substantial balance due. When choosing to resolve these issues, it's best to use a Tax Resolution firm like JG Tax Group (http://www.jgtaxgroup.com), because most of the Tax Resolution Firms you see on TV are terrible - Tax Masters, Ronni Deutch and JK Harris have multiple complaints and maintain unacceptable scores with the Better Business Bureau.

Your unemployment benefits cannot be garnished by anyone but your state government for past due state taxes, and even then it as a last resort. However with a court order the …loan holder can garnish your bank account under the guise that they had no idea the money was from unemployment benefits (the IRS will not do this) - and good luck getting that money back any time soon. They will hold onto it for months and months. There are also a couple of states Like Louisiana) that have Napoleonic law, which means, they can get the sheriff come take your personal items to sell as part of the payment on your defaulted loan. If you are in dire straights. Call the IRS. Tell them you are on unemployment and they will stop all collections until you get a job. Seriously. They do this. Please note that if you get a job and fail to contact them, they will levy your wages and property, so your employer will know and so will anyone who looks at your credit report. If you contact your lender and they won't work out a payment arrangement in writing with you, contact a bankruptcy attorney to go over your options.
Sure. Death benefits do not enjoy any preference when thebeneficiary owes back taxes. They can also garnish your wagesand/or Social Security Benefits. You best bet is to set u…p apayment plan with then and get the back taxes paid.
