B-113666, APR. 7, 1961

TO MR. M. B. SEARS:

ON FEBRUARY 23, 1961, YOU AGAIN WROTE TO OUR OFFICE CONCERNING YOUR CLAIM AS JOINT PAYEE TO ONE-HALF OF THE PROCEEDS OF 1949 INCOME TAX REFUND CHECK NO. 25,990,243 FOR $92.61. THIS CHECK WAS DRAWN ON JUNE 12, 1950, TO THE ORDER OF G. AND M. SEARS FOR THE FULL PROCEEDS OF WHICH YOUR JOINT PAYEE AND FORMER HUSBAND, GEORGE B. SEARS, ALSO SUBMITTED A CLAIM.

THIS MATTER HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF CONSIDERABLE CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN YOU AND OUR OFFICE. NO PURPOSE WOULD BE SERVED HERE IN RECOUNTING THE SCOPE OF THIS CORRESPONDENCE AS THE ENCLOSED COPY OF DECISION TO YOU B- 113666, OCTOBER 27, 1953, CORRECTLY STATES THE POSITION THAT OUR OFFICE MUST TAKE IN THIS MATTER. IN THAT DECISION WE POINTED OUT THAT UNTIL YOU AND YOUR FORMER HUSBAND ARRIVE AT AN AGREEMENT AS TO THE DISPOSITION TO BE MADE OF THE PROCEEDS OF THE JOINT CHECK, AND SUCH AGREEMENT IS SUBMITTED HERE, NO FURTHER ACTION CAN BE TAKEN BY OUR OFFICE IN THE MATTER.

THEREFORE, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS WE RECEIVE A COPY OF SUCH AN AGREEMENT, OUR PREVIOUS ACTIONS ON YOUR CLAIM MUST BE SUSTAINED.
