When is an estate tax return due?

By March 16, 2015

An estate tax return is due nine months after the date of death and may be extended for six months. A return is required if assets are in excess of $2 million (in the year 2006), even if the net estate is less than $2 million. However, filing may be recommended even if the estate is less than $2 million, to start the statute of limitations running.
