So sorry for the loss of your mother.    If your mother was your dependent then you can still claim her as a dependent on your 2020 return even if she passed away in 2020 or 2021

 

IRS interview to help determine who can be claimed:

And you'll be able to claim her on your 2021 return as long as she meet the qualifying income criteria and you provided more than half her support for the time she was alive in 2021.
