Re: Do I Pay Tax on Husband’s Bonus Check Received the Year After He Died?

The entire amount of wages or other employee compensation earned by the dece- dent but unpaid at the time of death is income in respect of a decedent.

Do I Pay Tax on Husband’s Bonus Check Received the Year After He Died?

My husband died in March, 2017, and to say that I am confused about finances would be a great understatement, but I do have one specific question that I hope someone can answer.

Re: Any (medicare plans) experience with Silver & Fit?

I have an Aetna Medicare PPO and the only “catch” I found with our free Silver and Fit is that I can only choose one gym, in my case, Gold’s. It’s a very nice perk. No fees at all.
