I'm trying to wrap up the kids' returns today and then do our amended return. The instructions from Taxcut tell me to put the SSN on the check. I'm not floating my son's SSN through who knows how many hands. Is this really necessary ?It's essential on your kid's tax payment. What happens if the check gets separated from the return at the IRS? The check has your name and address on it. The IRS will apply it to your account. Your kids' account will not get credited and they will be billed for failure to pay penalties. Eventually, you will be able to straighten it all out, but who needs the aggravation. Besides which, The IRS has his name and SSN from the tax return. If his name isn't on the check, no one will know who the SSN belongs to.Ira
