Hi,...The rules differ for partnerships, depending on whether or not a partnership agreement signed by all partners exists....With a basic general partnerships, if one or more of the owners die, under the default regulations, when no partnership agreement exists, the partnership dissolves....So yes, the husband does a final 1065, that only includes operations up to the date of death, and files as sole proprietor including everything after the date of death....And yes, as self-employed the taxation all still comes to the individual, and husband receives a step-up on 1/2 of property jointly owned or owned together in the partnership
