Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
A personal representative of an estate is an executor (executrix), administrator (administratrix) or anyone who is in charge of the decedent's property. The personal representative is responsible for filing any final individual income tax return(s) and the estate tax return of the decedent when due.
Your sister may benefit from the IRS publication 559
