My brother passed away in Dec' 2005. Till financial year 2010-2011, his wife is filing income tax as a legal representative.
I asked my friend who is CA - he told there is nothing wrong in filing tax by LR.
I have tried googling it, but could not find any number of years, till which it can be filed by LR.
I feel LR can file just for that financial year he died; but after that it needs to be stopped.
Property/ Capital should be transferred to the legal heirs/ or as per the WILL.
Please let me know if she should stop filing tax or can she continue as a LR.
