I was planning on end date of 7/31/22 for 1041 short return, but the final legal fees did not post as paid from the last of the IOLTA until August 2, 2200. This is the last thing I have to do to close the estate. I know there is no more income coming and all distributions are complete. The estate is complete. Does the return now have to go to August 31? Do I have to wait until September 1 2022 to sign and date and mail this return or can I date it earlier and mail it?
The money was in the IOLTA trust for the estate so it was paid by the trust. The invoice is dated earlier but Aug 2 is the day it was paid by the trust (the lawyer's book keeper did this). I funded the trust when I first hired the lawyer a couple years ago.
