What form do I need to claim a refund for someone who died?

TurboTax will automatically fill out IRS Form 1310 when you file a return on behalf of a deceased person (also called a decedent return).

For a death that occurred during tax year 2016, make sure you indicate that the person died during 2016 or before he/she filed their 2016 return. That way, TurboTax will generate Form 1310 for you.
