Hi All,

I'm pretty sure I know the answer here, but I thought I would confirm it and hopefully be pointed to an IRS document that will clarify this for me.

I'm using TurboTax. I got married back in April of 2001. I filed 2000 as single and I received my $300 rebate. My wife is a medical student and didn't file in 2000 as she had no income. Her parents probably claimed her. She received no rebate as was expected.

Now, when filling in TurboTax married filing jointly, when it asks how much of a rebate we received and I put in $300, our rebate goes up the other assumed $300 we are "owed." I don't think that is correct. Can anyone point me in the correct direction?
