Hi

Normally you would need to apply for a new UTR and set up  a new online record for your wife but as she has passed away this will not be possible so you need to let HMRC know she has passed away and they will set up the record if needed and also send you a paper version of the self assessment to fill in

May I ask why you think you need to fill one in for your wife passing away ?
Here are the instructions what to do when you have lost a loved one for tax purposes

Let me know if I can assist further

Thanks
