First, I would like to express my condolences on the passing of your brother.

Yes, you can file your Brother's taxes using TurboTax.  You will need to set up a separate account for his Tax return. 

As you start the TurboTax interview, under the Personal Information section,  you should choose "I'm preparing this return for ______ who is deceased".  Next, you should enter the date of death. From here you can prepare his return as you normally would.

I suggest that you read IRS Pub 559 (Survivors, Executors, and Administrators) for a lot of good information about filing the final return and estate return and other requirements.
