If you’ve recently suffered the loss of a spouse or other relative, you have a lot on your mind. Unfortunately, during this difficult time, you’ll also have to deal with the deceased person’s final tax return. In addition to reporting income earned up to the time of death, you may also have to determine who will pay any taxes owed or receive any refunds. Was the decedent paying his or her own medical bills prior to death? Those expenses may be able to be deducted, along with any charitable contributions, unreimbursed business expenses, and other traditional itemized deductions. Additionally, you may need to file paperwork related to the deceased person’s estate.
