Mom qualified for Medicaid in June of 2012 and entered a long term care facility at the same time. At that time all of her SS and pension income went directly to the facility. For period of time, there was Federal Withholding taken on some of her income do the LTC facility did not receive all of her income. She did not file Federal Income Tax returns for 2012 or 2013 and she died in March of 2014.
Should I...Can I as DPOA file returns for 2012/2013 to recover the taxes withheld? Even though any refund would likely go to the LTC facility, I'd like to clear it up.
