Is there a file tax return for deceased family member obligation — My mother died this year, do I file a final tax return on her behalf?
The same filing requirements for an individual apply to the final tax return for a deceased person. A personal representative must file the final tax return for deceased person for the year in which the person died. That representative must also file returns for prior years not already filed.
The personal representative who can file tax return for deceased can be any of these:
- Surviving spouse
- Legal representative
- Anyone in charge of the decedent’s property
