Ask A CPA - Deceased Taxpayers

How Do I Expedite The Estate Closing Process?

To expedite the closing of the decedents estate an executor or representative may file Form 4810 for a prompt assessment. Once filed the IRS has 18 months to assess additional Estate taxes. Form 4810 must be filed separately from the final return.
