Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Yes, you can. Assuming you are talking about his 2015 return, you can file jointly as surviving spouse or file separately.

Expert:  emc011075 replied 6 months ago.

If you have power of attorney or are executor of his estate you can sign the return and request a refund if you file a separate return.

Did you inherited the business? What type of business is it? Solo proprietor or partnership or corporation?
