Ultimately you will need a CPA, but you might consider hiring a Daily Money Manager (generally for less cost) to do the forensic work of finding everything and sorting through what is necessary and what is not, in order to provide CPA with all the tax records. I would also open dialog with the IRS to explain the situation and get their advice. Hopefully your father has designated a financial Power of Attorney. If not, and he still has capacity to understand what he is doing, it would be a very good idea to see an estate or elder law attorney to update his legal paperwork. Otherwise, he may be facing guardianship.
