His parents want to purchase a home for him, after we get married with it only being in their sons name.

Whoever is the estate fiduciary can file the return. The refund, if any, goes to the estate. The first $50,000 of any estate (unless there is a will) goes to the spouse. Thus, you need to determine if there is anything in it for you, if an estate is worth commencing, and if a return should be...Read more »

Last year I created an S-corp in NY after the suggestion for tax purposes by an accountant.
