Course Description

With more and more trusts being used today and audits of Form 1041 (U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts) on the rise, it has never been more critical to understand the ins and outs of income taxation of trusts and estates and the preparation of the Fiduciary Income Tax Return. Recent shifts and changes in the taxation of estates and trusts have also changed some of the planning techniques that practitioners should consider when advising clients.

Even if you are helping clients with a modest net worth, most will set up a inter vivos or testamentary trust or at least their estate will have to file an income tax return. This course is therefore helpful because there are many unique aspects to tax accounting for trusts and estates. For example, fiduciary accounting is a unique concept and many other deductions are subject to a different set of rules compared to individuals. This course will help you learn specialized knowledge and provide your clients with greater value. This course is designed for participants to understand the core concepts of trust and estate income tax preparation. The course explains the common terminology and complicated income tax rules of estates and trusts, fiduciary accounting, and an introduction to or refresher on preparing Form 1041.

I feel I am not advanced enough in the subject and need to go back and get more of the basics down. I feel the instructor was really good and the lack of experience on my end hindered the learning process.
