She had no assets at time of death, exept for few thousand in joint account with me. Took her name off account, and gave death certificate to bank. This money divided among children. She spent all her money in nursing home. She received less than $5000 in pension and had no interest, etc. We do not care about the $200 return she would get as it would cost more to probate the will. Any info you give would be helpful. So confusing and am getting different information from other sources. thanks

No, the IRS gets updates from SSA regarding deaths of taxpayers. An heir can file a final return for the decedent and agree to distribute it according to the laws of the state, to claim the refund. It was hers, go get it. A decedent return does not have to be a big undertaking or complicated. All the info you need is online. Www.irs.gov

If there were no assets, why is there a probate? Was she on Medicaid? The IRS wants a return with the death certificate, or they will assume she is still alive and not filing. They will call you.
