My dad passed away in 2011 and we are now ready to file his tax return. Mom is still alive, but has dementia. I have two questions.

1. As executor for my father, could you please confirm that I should sign the return for him, and indicate that I am the executor (or personal representative)?

2. Since my mom is not capable of signing as spouse, should I also sign for her, since I have Power Of Attorney for her?

Thanks!
Cheers!

Yes on both fronts.
