How do I proceed with filing my deceased father's income tax return?
Question Details: My father passed away last year, leaving behind no Will, no spouse just me, an only child. He owned a mobile home and a small truck. The truck was not running and the trailer was flooded by a hurricane, so at the time I thought it pointless to file anything in probate court. Now it is tax season and I'm unsure of what to do. Is there a statue of limitations on how long I have to file through probate court and will the court costs be substantial if I file a small estate affidavit? Is there any other option or procedure I must follow?
