My husband was arrest february 24th. He had an income tax check coming in but it was only under his name.. I went ahead and got a power of attorney written us so it could help take care of me and our son. But so far every bank and check cashing place has refused me. Told me they dont accept power of attorney's that only him himself can cash the check. Im lost and dont know what to do.
Simply put the check is not in your name. The banks are worried about violating the law. You could deposit the check/funds into his bank account then he can use the funds as he sees fit.
In addition to Avvo's terms of usage, this answer does not create an attorney client relationship. In providing the information the author is not rendering legal or other professional services.

There are a number of methods; apparently you do not have your own bank account to deposit the check. Therefore arrange with the IRS to issue the check to you in your name if the taxes were joint.
