Federal Income Taxation of Estates, Trusts & Beneficiaries (2020) (U.S.)

In stock

Authors: M. Carr Ferguson, Mark L. Ascher

Over the last half-century or so, taxation of fiduciary income
has become increasingly complex. While many fiduciaries
and professionals share responsibility for wealth planning or
reporting the income taxes relating to transmission of wealth,
there is little published to guide them through the maze of
choices and problems they may encounter. It provides stepby-
step guidance for dealing with the problems of preparation
of the decedent’s final return, characterization of income in
respect of a decedent, computation of distributable net income
(DNI), the interaction of the system of taxation of trusts and
estates and the passive activity rules, the grantor trust rules,
and the rules relating to split interest charitable trusts.
