My father recently passed (state of GA) and he owes some $60k in taxes. Presently there is no lien against his small IRA, home or van. My mother (though not married to my father) has lived in the home for more than 5 years.
We are trying to find her a home closer to us as we fear the IRS will take everything and she will have no where to go.
He owed much on credit cards too. I haven't touched anything and have no idea where to start.
I have sent back all of his bills, stating deceased, as there is no more income from his social security. We even had to pay for his cremation because he had no life insurance.
We are looking right now to purchase a home, closer to us, for my mother to live in. I feel like we've jumped out of the kettle and into the fire!
I have no idea what to do first, second or last. I'm totally lost!
