There should be an fiduciary return (Form 1041) prepared for the estate.
Any income and expenses of administering the estate should be reported on the estate's fiduciary return. Note: Form 1041 is not required for an estate with less than $600 in income.
Depending on the election made when the estate received it's TIN (taxpayer identification number), the estate may have a year end that is not December 31. If this is the case, the return will be due 3 months and 15 days after the fiscal year end of the estate.
