Do I need to complete the form 56?

I'm the successor trustee for my deceased father's Trust. His income was less than $600 for 2016. Do I need to send Form 56 if I don't have to submit any tax documents?

It's a good idea to file the form.  If there are ever questions about the trust, the IRS will know who to contact.
