290A.08 ONE CLAIMANT PER HOUSEHOLD.
Only one claimant per household per year is entitled to relief under this chapter. Payment
of the claim for relief may be made payable to the husband and wife as one claimant. The
commissioner, upon written request, may issue separate checks, to the husband and wife for
one-half of the relief provided the original check has not been issued or has been returned.
Individuals related as husband and wife who were married during the year may elect to file a joint
claim which shall include each spouse's income, rent constituting property taxes, and property
taxes payable. Husbands and wives who were married for the entire year and were domiciled
in the same household for the entire year must file a joint claim. The maximum dollar amount
allowable for a joint claim shall not exceed the amount that one person could receive.
