1041's for Trusts & Estates Course Information
When it comes to protecting and optimizing your clients’ trusts and estates, trust TaxSpeaker’s expertise. Our 1041’s for Trusts and Estates course is led by Bill Leonard, CPA, who is not only a practicing tax professional but also is Taxspeaker’s expert on trust and estate tax matters.
Beginning with a discussion of when returns are required, he guides participants through the 1041 tax preparation maze with hands-on guidance regarding types of trusts, return preparation, compliance, allocations, and distributions. In addition, we’ve taken care to update this course with 2021 and 2022 changes to estate planning rules, administration, and accounting in 1041’s, plus practical tips to plan throughout the workday.
During this course, we will define estates, a short tax year, distributions in kind, discretionary income distributions, and irrevocable and revocable living trusts. The instruction also includes identification of the duties of the fiduciary, characteristics of other types of trusts, purpose of the probate court and income distribution deduction, and options for IRA’s inherited by a spouse.
Upon completion, attendees will also have thorough competence to determine qualifiers of a grantor trust, how to compute amortization allowances, what qualifies as IRD, and the advantages of revocable living trusts.
