Hr block 2011 Form 56, Notice Concerning Fiduciary Relationship, is available for this purpose.

Hr block 2011 If no personal representative has been appointed by the due date for filing the return, the surviving spouse (on a joint return) should sign the return and write in the signature area “Filing as surviving spouse.

Hr block 2011 For more information about each of these filing statuses, see Publication 501. Hr block 2011 If you remarry before the end of the year in which your spouse died, a final joint return with the deceased spouse cannot be filed.

Hr block 2011 In that case, the filing status of your deceased spouse for his or her final return is married filing separately. Hr block 2011 The level of income that requires you to file an income tax return changes when your filing status changes (see Table 1-1). Hr block 2011 Even if you and your deceased spouse were not required to file a return for several years, you may have to file a return for tax years after the year of death. Hr block 2011 For example, if your filing status changes from filing jointly in 2012 to single in 2013 because of the death of your spouse, and your gross income is $17,500 for both years, you must file a return for 2013 even though you did not have to file a return for 2012.
