COVID-19-Related Filing Extensions for Tax Returns Related to Estate Administration

One of the many responsibilities that a Personal Representative (Executor) has a part of his or her fiduciary duties, when handling the administration of an estate, is the obligation to take all the steps required to have any tax returns filed on a timely basis.

A fiduciary has the duty to ensure that all required tax returns are timely filed. Because of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS has expressly extended certain filing dates, Therefore, a brief summary of some of those extensions is provided below.

If you have questions regarding how these revised extensions may apply to you, or any other questions regarding other areas of your administration responsibilities, please feel free to call us at our main numbers of 410-838-5500 or 410-879-2220, or by using our CONTACT FORM.
