Final 1040 for Deceased Tax Payer

obey234919
Level 2

Hello Everyone,

Quick question, when filing a deceased taxpayers final return what do you usually request for in addition? IRS says they don't need to see a POA.

Asking for preparer's due diligence and any helpful response is appreciated.

You'll probably need to complete Form 1310, even if the instructions say you don't.
