<< I assume that I would use my mother's tax identification number (S.S.#) as the main one on the tax form, since my father died in Feb. of 1999. As I stated to you earlier, The Tax Forms sent to them this year had a label as follows:Husband's name DECD & Wife's nameWife's name (below above)Current AddressSo you can see that they know that he is deceased, since they put DECD on the label. >>I assume his date of death was included on the 1998 return, so they know he died in 1999 and will be expecting a return from him.I would switch to your mother's name and SSN as primary for the 1999 return. DO NOT use the label. That will show things backward and confuse those poor overworked IRS computers.If she has not already done so, your mother needs to make sure she gets her SSN shown on all reporting documents before the end of the year. There will be problems on the 2000 return if there's any reporting under your father's number.Phil Marti
