I recently visited one of those "Does the governnment owe you money" sites that AOL sticks up occasionally. Sure enough, my name showed up a zillion times. Somehow when AT&T split (how long ago was that?) it generated small checks from each of the baby bells. Each check was under $10, but the Unclaimed Property Division of the State of Alabama sent me enough checks to generate $130+. They ONLY sent a check, though, so where did this money come from and how does it affect taxes? I could just shrug (it's under my ex's ssn and he DID say that it wasn't enough money to FOOL with so I was welcome to the proceeds), but I'm nicer than that. Does anyone know how to list it come taxes time? As near as I can tell, we own 1 share of AT&T, which must have generated this WINDFALL. LOL.
