If a family member has passed away, you’ll have a lot on your plate during what’s almost certainly an emotionally trying time. If the deceased individual was a taxpaying adult, you can add filing final tax returns to your to-do list. You’ll need to file the decedent’s final Form 1040 as usual, accounting for income and expenses up to the point of death. You may also need to file paperwork related to estate taxes, especially if you’re able to quickly sell off assets and property. With so many forms to keep track of, it can help to have a skilled tax professional on your side.
