My father-in-law passed away this year. All of his assets were depleted to cover medical & finl expenses. In doing his final PA state tax return I discover $53 is owed but there is no money left. Does this amount still need to be paid? If not how do I indicate it on the tax form?

If the estate has no assets, there's nothing for the state to collect from. A balance-due return for a decedent without a check will inform them they're not getting paid. Their computer will probably send a bill, and the administrator of the estate can send a letter saying there are no assets.
