It is my understanding that the due date for an estate tax return for a 2010 decedent who opts in to the 2011 law is 9 months after the date the new law was passed (which should be around 09/17/2011)

Sorry, I only intended to save my post for later revision, I didn't realize I was publishing it to the forum. Anyway, It is my understanding that the due date for an estate tax return for a 2010 decedent who opts in to the 2011 law is 9 months after the date the new law was passed (which should be 09/19/2011, since exactly 9 months falls on either Saturday or Sunday depending on whether you count the day Obama signed the bill). Does anyone have any idea what the 706 is going to look like? Has anyone found anything from the Service in that regard?

Nope. 2011 law (and approximate filing deadline) is the default for 2010 decedents. ยง1022 is the option and the deadline is presumably the extended due date for decedent's final tax return.
