How awful about your son doing that!
It is incredible.
I guess after peeling myself off the floor and putting my lower jaw back up into place, i have to wonder if your son fully appreciates the consequences of his actions... lik Bizi i wondered if he was so young that he thinks problems he can't solve will just go away if he ignores them. I hate to think he is just outright irresponsible. Could it have been an oversight - he got caught up in his own taxes and plain forgot?
Well, i guess i would talk to him and see what it's all about for starters - and whether he can make those payments with the penalties... perhaps giving you the paperwork to seal and mail, so that you can be sure.
do you still have any power over the house / over who is trustee or is that all his now? i was wondering if there was anyone else you could turn to for help with these things, but i don't know if you can remove your son from the trustee position. i do not have a good grasp of the legal situation - and it doesn't sound at all simple.
I'm sorry for your GERD and Barrett's Esophagus sx acting up. Do please be careful what you eat these days to try to reduce acidity - and if you are not taking anything for it right now, might want to ask your doctor for something to decrease the acidity - a proton pump inhibitor or whatever the latest invention is...
Wishing you a good day today. sending lots of (((huggggs))) and soothing vibes.
