Oh boy did the IRS mess things up!
Mom did not receive her 1099 because she moved. I tried to get it from IRS. They said I needed to fill out forms, which I did. (Lovely visit and two hours spent at SS) I had to get a form from the NH saying Mom was incompetent also.
I just received a letter from SS. They put Mom's income on my social security number on the 1099! We have a joint account - I didn't need to have the money credited to me!
Obviously, the wrong form, obviously I did not want to be her SS payee. I have already filed my taxes! Now I have to go back to SS and change everything back before it all hits the fan.
This is all because when I tried to change the mailing address for her on line there were warnings about fines and prison even if you are POA that you can't get on line for someone else's account. When I called SS they told me which forms to file, NH also. What a bunch of idiots. I really don't need to spend hours at SS again!
Warning to everyone about dealing with SS!
All I wanted was to have her
