My mom passed away 01/18. I need to file a '17 return,though I will also need to do one for '18. Turbotax is telling me year of death cannot precede the current tax year?

I am sorry to hear about your loss. Since the person was still alive in 2017, you would not report him/her as deceased in that year. When you do his/her 2018 taxes, that is when you will say she died.

Here is a collection of information regarding preparing a return for a deceased person: https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/replies/2647725
