If his only income is social security, he would not be required to file a tax return and you do not need to file an extension. Hope this helps!

i thought i had to file a final time...he had a checking account with a few grand in it for pennies of interest...we jointly held a checking account...he owned no property..his ira didnt have an rmd during 2018...so if i dont file for him in 2018 am i going to be in trouble with the irs on his behalf?

From the information you provided, he is not required to file a tax return.And you will not get into trouble with the IRS for not filing.
