This course will address the 1041 head-on. Discussions will include the purposes of the fiduciary income tax return-Form 1041. As well as specialized topics such as Tier 1 and 2 distributions, the separate share rule, state trusts, terminations and special needs trusts. This will be a power-packed eight hours. Coverage includes essential terminology of estates and trusts, the essence of a trust vs. a probate estate, simple vs. complex trusts as well as revocable vs. irrevocable trusts. Recent developments are covered including TCJA changes and IRS recent rulings regarding excess deductions on termination. What deductions are still allowed on the fiduciary income tax return after TCJA? The mysteries of “income in respect of a decedent” are plumbed. Particular attention is focused on the income distribution deduction as Form 1041 is the only place in the world of tax where this item is found. There will be a walk-through completion of Schedule B. Including all the above with an introduction to fiduciary accounting (principle vs. income), a brief history of the estate tax in the United States, and trouble-shooting fiduciary problems-what to do when things go wrong.
