Form 1041 Fiscal Year Estate
Client just emailed (new client) after we prepped his Mom's 1041 for her Estate to tell me that in 2017 he filed a fiscal year end 1041 ending August 2018 instead of a short year from DOD until December.
We have prepared a calendar for 2018. I know I can amend his 2017 to a short year or I can "rework" 2018 to include only Sept - Dec activity which I am loathe to do for obvious reasons. Lots' of activity.
My question is can I just wait and file a September 2018 to August 31st 2019?
My client says he's "really sorry because he's been busy" Holding my tongue on "busy". Thanks for anyone's input.
