Q.  We just filed the 2007 return for my father who died last year. Will a tax rebate be issued in his name?

A.  Yes. Individuals who filed a 2007 federal income tax return are eligible for the new economic stimulus rebates. This includes situations where a taxpayer dies after filing a return or where the final 2007 return was filed by a personal representative or surviving spouse. Normally, rebate payments will be made to the estate of the deceased taxpayer.

Tip: If the final return was a joint return with no other appointed representative for the deceased taxpayer, the surviving spouse will receive the economic stimulus rebate.
