Filing for a Deceased Taxpayer

When you are filing a joint return as a surviving spouse,

If you, as the surviving spouse, are due a refund, the refund will be issued directly to you.

When you are filing a return on behalf of a single deceased taxpayer,

A personal representative, such as an executor or administrator must sign and date the return. The representative’s title and telephone number must be provided.

If a refund is due, attach Form IL-1310, Statement of Person Claiming Refund Due a Deceased Taxpayer.
