Grouch,

I agree with paying your debt but bankruptcy exists so there are methods to get out of it. However, in this case, the IRS was collecting debts from adult children for parents debt. The debt was caused by an error by the government overpayming. So, the government screws up; your parent was overpaid and now dead, you have a refund coming which might mean you are productive member of society. So, obviously the government goes after anyone with means.

From the Washington Post: "The government seized her checks because of a $2,996 debt that was supposedly incurred under her father’s Social Security number. Her father died in 1960, when she was 4, and her mother received survivors’ benefits thereafter."

So, the logic is she received benefits from her parents payments therefore she owes the government? Maybe we should go after every adult child who received food stamps and government housing as a child. I think it would give an incentive of working for money versus living off the government.. sarcasm.
