I need to file a return for my late father. Is this called an estate return? If so, what TurboTax product can handle an estate return.

Typically,  a final, but regular, individual income tax return (e.g., Form 1040) is filed for a decedent by the personal representative. 


See https://www.irs.gov/publications/p559#en_US_2017_publink100099499



An estate income tax return (Form 1041) is required to be filed if the estate has gross income for the tax year of $600 or more, or a beneficiary who is a nonresident alien.
