Claudia Hill, EA, MBA, has been in practice for a long time, and has prepared a lot of 1041 returns. One of the things that many people get confused about is the fact that the 1041 form is to be used to report the income for both an estate and a trust. This class will focus on the use of form 1041, specifically for estate. When someone dies, a new legal entity rises up to handle the business, personal, and financial affairs of the decedent. This course will take you through everything that you will need for Form 1041 for Estate not Trust.
