Both parents died in 2018. Do I still need to file their income taxes?

emma2040, to make sure what is best to do, talk with a tax preparer.

In my case, my Dad had stocks which were producing "income" during the Probate process which took almost two years. Thus, I had to file income taxes for Dad each year for the two years after his passing. Thank goodness Dad had a CPA so that helped.

Your message cut off. Doing their income taxes depends on their incomes. My Moms was mostly SS under 20k. IRS told her years ago to stop filing. I checked with my tax person and she said it would probably cost me more to file than Mom would get back.

I would check this out with your tax preparer.
