Subchapter J of the Internal Revenue Code governs income taxation of estates and trusts-an area of tax law with numerous special rules, regulations, and professional customs. Form 1041 is unlike any other income tax return a tax professional encounters. This program explains the unique tax rules and opportunities for the knowledgeable tax advisor to provide valuable tax services to fiduciaries-from special tax accounting to options for reporting trust income and expenses. The program will contain state-specific information on the state's principal and income tax (including unique features of that Act) that is used to compute "accounting income" necessary for the preparation of Form 1041.
