My husband passed away April 24 2016 How do I file Married?

I am sorry for your loss. Since he passed in 2016 you still file married filing jointly. You are considered married the entire year that a spouse passes away. You  also may be eligible to use Qualifying Widow(er) with dependent child as your filing status for 2 years following the year your spouse died as long as you have not remarried. This treats your return as a joint return and you can get a higher standard deduction.
