My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Florida
My mother passed away on December 27th at the age of 74. Would my step-father be responsible for paying income tax or would her estate be responsible to pay? They did not pay quarterly taxes. If the estate is responsible to pay, would it be a 50/50 or would the estate be responsible for only "her income". Stepdad made more money in his name than she did in hers. The have filed jointly over the years.
