My mother passed away with no assets - no home or investments. Does the executor need to file a form 1041 for the estate?
" Does the executor need to file a form 1041 for the estate?"
The filing requirements are as follows:
The fiduciary (or one of the joint fiduciaries) must file Form 1041 for a domestic estate that has:
Gross income for the tax year of $600 or more, or
A beneficiary who is a nonresident alien.
