Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

My husband passed in Aug 2015. I received a 1099-MISC for his bonus that his employer still paid in 2016. It's under his social. Do I file jointly or single?

I'm confused since it's under his social and just want to make sure I file the proper return.

If you have a dependent, then you may qualify to file as a qualifying widower. Otherwise, you will need to file as single. Please view the Turbo Tax FAQ below for more information.
