my husband, a federal government employee, died in 2010 leaving me a widow with 4 kids. i received the federal employee's basic death benefit of $51,058.45, but they withheld $10,211.69 for tax, even though his income yearly was not very much, mine was none, and supporting 4 kids. now i am living in poverty on only social security survivor benefits. is there any way i can get that withheld amount refunded back to me? i dont think its right for for that high of a tax amount considering how low our income was.
