A taxpayer passes away on July 12, 2015. He has an S Corporation. In his will he states that corporation and its assets go to his girl friend. His girl friend is also the signatory of the corporation bank account. The court has appointed deceased taxpayer's daughter as the Estate Administrator. Is the Corporation under the Estate? The Administrator is preparing the Corporation tax returns. The girl friend thinks that since she is the signatory to the bank account, she can spend the corporation bank account funds not only for the corporation but also for her personal needs since she thinks that corporation is going to be hers any.
