What other tax returns can a Pennsylvania decedent’s estate be required to pay?

Other than the Pennsylvania Inheritance Tax return, the Executor or Administrator of an estate may need to file other tax returns. In most cases, the estate’s personal representative will need to file the decedent’s final state and federal income tax returns. A much smaller amount of estates need to file a return for federal estate taxes, as well as state and federal income taxes for the estate in cases where the assets of the estate generate income as the estate is being administered.
