Did your mother work at all during 2009? If so, you will want to file a return. If there only income was from Social Security you won't even need to file. You don't claim your sister. If she was receiving SS benefits, she won't be claimed on anyone's return. If you need to file a return for them, you will file Form 2120 if there is a refund to claim. You are required to use that refund to pay their bills if any are still unpaid. You personally are not liable for their bills.

File just as though they were alive the whole year. There may be a refund you can claim. Attach Form 1310 http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1310.pdf to claim any refund. The costs of their final illnesses and funeral expenses would take priority over any other creditors if they were paid for from their assets
