How Do You Cash Irs And California Refund Checks Made Out To Husband And Wife If We Do Not Have A Joint Account And Husband Does Not Have A Ssn/itin# And Husband Resides Out Of US?
If you do not have an ITIN or a SSN # it would not be possible to include your Husband on the Tax Return as this is required by IRS and FTB. Your only option would be to file Married Filing Separately or possibly Head of Household if there are children involved. In this case the Check would only be issued in your name. If you choose to file Separately on the Original Tax Return you have the option to later Amend (correct) the Return after receiving an ITIN or SSN #.

Have him get a POA to allow you to sign the checks on his behalf. If he is with the military, he should be able to do this on base with a JAG officer.
