If there are co-executors on a 1041 are both co-executors required sign? Could one sign if they had the other one's permission?

When all else fails, read the Instructions

Who Must Sign
Fiduciary
The fiduciary, or an authorized
representative, must sign Form 1041. If
there are joint fiduciaries, only one is
required to sign the return.

Just tell them to flip a coin to see which one gets to sign.
