My mother passed away in October 2014. My father passed years

Customer Question

My mother passed away in October 2014. My father passed years ago. Mother lived in Michigan and I live in Tennessee. I am also the executor of the estate.
I'm trying to figure out how to file estate taxes. My 2 sisters and I received cash from the sale of mom's condo in Michigan. We also divided monies from cashing out or receiving refunds on other personal items. The estate was valued at less than $200,000.
Any guidance you can provide would be very helpful to me as to what is reportable, if it's reportable, etc.
I did file mom's personal income taxes for 2014 both with Michigan and federal previously.
