While preparing an Arizona Form 141AZ Fiduciary return, a question was asked and at first I answered it one way but then began to wonder about its real implications. I looked on the AZ Dept of Revenue website and they were no help, even their instructions said to answer this question without providing any guidance and so I am asking anyone who is familiar with this issue to provide their help to me. It is Question E3 on page 4 and it asks: Was an income tax return filed for the four preceding tax years? At first I thought this applied to the Trust but then I began to wonder that maybe it applied to the decedent? My doubt came about because the next question E4 asks, was a fiduciary return filed last year? So then I began to think that maybe question E3 applied to the decedent and not to the Trust??? Please help if you can and thank you, Tom Bruzda, E.A.
