Client has been renting her disabled daughters condo (which she purchased) and reporting on Schedule E with her personal 1040. However, once she sold the condo in January, turns out the property is actually in a Special Needs Trust. The sale should be reported on 1041 since the proceeds were placed in the trust account. Is it ok to just dispose the property on the asset sheet of the clients 1040 without including any of the sales information?
It definitely results in more tax on the 1041.This is my first experience with a SNT. In my research of how to handle, most of what I'm finding is to file the 1041 because a TIN was obtained for it. The IRS 1041 instructions seems to indicate the same. Of course it's the IRS and most times they lean in favor of more tax. Your thoughts?
I can usually track down EIN requests to a bank teller with a GED. How long has this trust existed? Are the people who wrote it still around? Are they somewhat competent? Sometimes they used to be bank tellers.
