1099 C for deceased spouse with no estate

My husband passed away in March 2014, and I filed jointly for 2014 tax year. No estate or trust was established. I received a Tax Year 2015 Form 1099-C in his name only. I am filing single this year and wondering if I need to do anything with his 1099-C, there was no estate or trust.

1099 C for deceased spouse with no estate

No.  You do not need to do anything with the 1099-C issued in your husband's name. If he had an estate, the estate would be responsible for paying the tax on the income. In the absence of an estate, you have nothing to report.

I am sorry for your loss.

1099 C for deceased spouse with no estate

Is there documentation for not including the 1099C for someone who has passed who has no estate in Form 1040 joint return ?
