9781567069907: Federal Income Taxation of Estates, Trusts, and Beneficiaries

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. Federal Income Taxation of Estates, Trusts, & Beneficiaries provides step-by-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. As always, the update is designed to provide the reader with information that is timely and tailored to the needs of today s busy practitioner. The 2016 update to Federal Income Taxation of Estates, Trusts & Beneficiaries is a completely revised edition that brings you up to date on the latest developments in this complex and constantly changing area.
