As to filing for your mother-in-law yourself, it's the responsibility of the spouse or executor. You can't "assume" the responsibility if it isn't yours. OF course, if she didn't have to file in 2000, there's a good chance she won't have to file a 2001 return either.Looking at 1040 - Single >65 $8,550 need to file. Her 1099-R's are about 2x's that. They have "appointed" me as the person in charge of this. When I said "myself" I should have said "Is there any pitfalls of doing the taxes ourselves". They should be straight forward, I would think. She will have a 1040 with 1099-R's. Schedule B for interest from the bank. And that should be about it.ThanksElliot
