If it is determined that an estate was established, attempts are made to collect the debt from the estate. If no estate appears to have been established, the debt is written off as uncollectable. This form is used to obtain information on deceased debtors from probate courts.
Affected Public: Individuals or Households; State, Local or Tribal Government.
Frequency: On Occasion.
