IRS Procedures - Signing the Return


Rev. date: 1/2010


My husband passed away last year, and I will be filing a joint return. Are there any special return notations required to indicate my husband is deceased?

If you are a surviving spouse filing a joint return and no personal representative has been appointed, you should sign the return and write in the signature area, "filing as surviving spouse."
