Filing 18 return for my deceased father. He passed away in 19. TurboTax is filling in that he self-prepared even though marked him as deceased and entered date of death.

Filing 18 return for my deceased father. He passed away in 19. TurboTax is filling in that he self-prepared even though marked him as deceased and entered date of death.

"Self-prepared" only means that the return is not being prepared by a registered tax professional, but by "the taxpayer" or a non-registered preparer such as yourself with Power of Attorney.  We apologize for your loss, also.
