Yes, whosoever will be the legal heir would complete the taxation compliance and paid the outstanding taxes etc. If they not have knowledge then it's better to hire any CA or Tax professional.

Retired employee.

Sole proprietorship is not a "Company"  but a "Concern".  Get the assistance of a private auditor and settle the dues of Govt as a legal heir of the sole proprietor.
