Do I need to file 2015 taxes for my deceased dad?

I am the Executor. Dad died in March 2015 and his only income was SS. I have taken care of everything else regarding his estate. There were no retirement accounts or other type of income.

You probably do not have to file those taxes, but you also may want to consult with a CPA. His taxable year was Jan. 1, 2015- March 2015, so it is unlikely there is sufficient income to file a return (especially if he had not filed one recently). The estate becomes a taxable entity beginning on the date of death. However, it does not sound like there is sufficient income to file an income tax return for the estate (estates have to earn over $600 in a year in order to need to file a return).
