How long after filling a final tax statement does one need to hold onto the decedent's tax records? I've got boxes and boxes of a deceased relatives tax records I'd love to toss. How long should I hold on to them. This was a simple estate. The final tax statement was filed in 2001. I would apply the same logic as I would for personal tax records. Seven years after filing deadline for the support documentation. I would probably keep copies of the returns indefinitely, especially if there is an Estate Tax return which establishes stepped up cost basis for assets.Ira
