Entering a decedent's Social Security number on fiduciary returns in ProConnect Tax

by ProConnect Tax Online Updated 7 months ago

You want to enter a decedent's Social Security number on a Form 1041 return in ProConnect Tax.

How you can find the input for Form 56:

  1. From the Input Return tab, go to Misc. Forms Notice Concerning Fiduciary Rel.
  2. Enter in Decedent's social security number.

Fiduciary returns generally use the federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the estate that formed when the decedent passed away.

The only form on a federal fiduciary return that requires the decedent's Social Security number is Form 56.
