While preparing for The US Income Tax Return for Estates & Trusts (Form 1041), it's important to understand the guidelines IRS issued to file it without any errors. In this webinar, we'll take a deep dive to explain the income, gains, deductions, losses, etc. of the estate or trust. We'll discuss the income that is either held or accumulated for future distribution or distributed currently to the beneficiaries.

You'll discover what falls into the income tax liability of the estate or trust and what guidelines we need to comply with in such conditions. We'll bunk all the myths around employment taxes on wages paid to household employees.

Many practitioners assume that “Form 1041 can’t be much different than Form 1040” but the intricacies of Subchapter J of the Internal Revenue Code are enough to overwhelm them.
