My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: IL
We did file his 2019 taxes, but in terms of going backwards we don't know if he filed past taxes or not.
Granted, we also didn't find any correspondence from the IRS stating that he didn't file, or that they were going to garish his SSA or Pension, but we truly don't know if he filed or not and don't want to be surprised by the IRS / State of IL looking for past taxes if we just let this drift.
Plus, if he didn't file, we certainly don't have all his records (income, rental property income/expenses, property tax, etc) to be able to recreate his taxes.
It's an ugly mess and I'm hoping I can get some input on the subject. Thanks.
