Deceased Estate

Some more information from one of our clients
 
For persons with date of death on or after 1 March 2016, tax is payable by the estate on post-death income.
A new tax number is obtained and returns must be submitted from date of death until date of approval by the Master of the L&D account.
There is no primary rebate and exempt interest is R23,800 even if the deceased person was over 65.
Expenses such as Masters fees, executors remuneration, etc are not allowed as a deduction.
Assessed losses may not be carried over from the pre-death tax number to the post-death number.
 
Just be aware of the rebate and exempt interest differences and adjust the tax calc manually.
Perhaps you could write this into the program.
