Will I need to file a tax return for my brother who passed away Sept 5, 2018?

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

If your brother has income greater than $12,000 (or net Self-Employment income in excess of $400), you should file a return for him.  In addition, even if isn't required to file and had withholding reported on a W2 or 1099, you should file in order to receive the withholding as a refund.

You can file your Brother's taxes who passed away in September 2018. This will be his final individual tax return. You will need to set up a separate account for your Brother's 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.
