October 1979, My husband died and he left a Will stating'"I give, devise, and bequeath all of my estate and property, real, personal, or mixed, whatsoever or wheresoever situated, of which I may die seized or possessed or to which I may be entitled at the time of my death, to my Wife. The sisters and brothers sold some property belonging to the father. There were eight children, one deceased leaving seven childred and the wife of the oldest deceased son.
I recorded the Will in that county Court in March, 2010 when I was informed they were going to sell the property. I see on the Owner's Affidavit and Agreement I was listed as receiving my husband's share. I was sent the Settlement Statement - Total go to Seller $69,361.31.
I received the 1099-B and the Percentage of my Ownership
4.17 Gross monies to me would be $2,919.00. (The Percentage of Ownership to a brother 12.50 Gross monies to him $8,750.00. I do not why this was in my package). Why is my share much less?
If I remarried, would it make a difference? (Inez)
