Please note that the requirements for Pennsylvania taxes are much lower than for federal tax.  Do not assume that if you don’t file federal that you don’t have to file state as well.   Additionally, if your spouse passes away during the tax year, you cannot file a joint return.  You must file separate returns with a final return being filed for the deceased spouse.  You can allocate your income across these two returns.
