Where does the number come from on a form 8960 on line 19a?

Level 1

i am doing a 1041 filing for an estate and all income is passing thru to beneficiaries via K-1.  one the form 8960 there is a number on line 19A of $254 and i can not figure out where that number is coming from.  By coincidence $254 is the amount of taxes paid by the estate.....but i do not see why that would be the number on 19a.

anyone have any ideas/

thanks

Line 19a—Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) If the estate or trust doesn’t own a CFC or PFIC, enter its AGI for regular income tax purposes. If the estate or trust owns a CFC or PFIC, it may need to make adjustments. See Line 13—Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI), earlier.

In most cases 19a comes from Line 21 on page 1 of the 1040.

Maybe @Intuit BettyJo can track down a ProSeries expert to get a better answer for this 1041.

I agree that the $254 in both places is confusing.
