My 87 year old father passed away in Feb 2014. The executor of the estate told me that they can't finalize estate because he hasn't submitted tax returns since 2010. All documents I have is his bank statements. He was a retired farmer and did not receive a pension. What should I do?
You can request all his income certificates from the banks and investment companies and see whether or not he was actually earning taxable interest for each year. If he received no salary and no pension, did he earn income in those years? If not then you can submit nil returns.
