Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. There is no specific course of action is proposed and no attorney-client relationship or privilege formed within this conversation. (You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.)

The answer is yes. Even if he had no will, a last tax filing must be done. This is called a FINAL RETURN. You can see the STEP BY STEP instructions and the forms HERE. Technically this would not be due until next year, but it may be filed early.

Good luck.

I only have to file for 2018 and not 2017

No. You have to file for 2017 and 2018. This is what I meant.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
