Questions & Advice
Death and Taxes
My sister died two years ago with virtually no money. She was
permanently disabled, troubled mentally, and heavily in debt.
There was a few thousand dollars left when she died, which I
used to pay funeral expenses, rent, etc that she owed. There was
no will, so I volunteered as administrator. Now the IRS had
written me that she withdrew money (about $12,000) from an IRA
the year she died. They say I have to file a tax return for her.
My question is: If any money is owed, am I somehow liable? This
seems ridiculous! My thought was to write back to the IRS and
just tell them what I wrote above... any thoughts?

Unfair Tariff! Need Your Help!
For the last nine years European mustards have been subject to a
100 percent tariff. Not only has this meant higher prices for
our mustards from Dijon, from Ireland, from Germany, from
Holland, etc., it has also resulted in fewer European mustards
coming into the U.S. You can do something to help get rid of
this terrible tax on imported mustards.
