In 2000 my mother-in-law lived with us and we will
take her as a dependent (for the first time.) She
died on July 3rd with assets of less than $1,000 and
had only received about 6 months of Social Security
at $450/month for 2000 income. Do I have to file a
Form1040 for 2000 for her ONLY to let the IRS know that she has passed away? Some place I read that a tax
return has to be filed within 8 months of a person's
death but her income was well under the taxable limit
to file. I will appreciate any advice.

Since her income was under the filing limit as you indicate, there is no need to file a Form 1040 for her. The Social Security Administration notifies the IRS of decedents.
