You have to file tax-returns of a dead person, only if there is a tax-liability that has arisen during the financial year. Not otherwise. Let's say, a retired person has had rental income to the tune of Rs.4 lakhs and died without filing his tax-returns. Now, since there is a tax-liability it is the duty of the legal heir to file the tax-returns.
