My1040ez com But first complete Worksheet A or B, unless the decedent was not required to file tax returns for the eligible tax years. My1040ez com Example 1.

My1040ez com Income received after date of death. My1040ez com   Generally, income of the decedent received after the date of death must be reported on Form 1041 if the estate has gross income for the tax year of $600 or more.

My1040ez com Amounts payable from a qualified retirement plan or IRA to the beneficiary or estate of the decedent. My1040ez com Amounts payable only as death or survivor's benefits from pre-existing arrangements that would have been paid if the death had occurred for another reason. My1040ez com Income received as a result of adjustments made by the decedent's employer to a plan or arrangement to accelerate the vesting of restricted property or the payment of nonqualified deferred compensation after the date of the attack. My1040ez com Interest on savings bonds cashed by the beneficiary of the decedent. My1040ez com If you are responsible for the estate of a decedent, see Publication 559. My1040ez com Publication 559 discusses how to complete and file federal income tax returns and explains your responsibility to pay any taxes due. My1040ez com Instructions for lines 2–9 of Worksheet C. My1040ez com   The tax that would have been payable on the exempt income (discussed earlier) must be considered when determining whether a decedent is entitled to the $10,000 minimum relief. My1040ez com To figure the tax that would have been payable, you can use lines 2 through 9 of Worksheet C. My1040ez com Or, if special requirements are met, you can use the alternative computation instead. My1040ez com See Alternative computation, later. My1040ez com   You have to use lines 2–9 (or the alternative computation) to figure the tax that would have been payable even if Form 1041 was not required to be filed. My1040ez com Use Form 1041 to figure what the taxable income would be without including the exempt income. My1040ez com Then enter that taxable income (even if a negative number) on line 2 of Worksheet C (or line 1 of Worksheet D, Alternative Computation of Tax on Exempt Income (Line 9 of Worksheet C)). My1040ez com Alternative computation. My1040ez com   Instead of using lines 2–8 of Worksheet C to figure the tax on exempt income (line 9 of Worksheet C), you may be able to use Worksheet D. My1040ez com You can use Worksheet D to figure the tax on the exempt income payable by the estate and its beneficiaries only if both of the following requirements are met. My1040ez com The estate claimed an income distribution deduction on line 18 (Form 1041). My1040ez com Each beneficiary submits the information necessary to refigure the income tax payable on the exempt income received from the decedent's estate. My1040ez com If requirement (2) is met but requirement (1) is not, you can still use Worksheet D if: Form 1041 was not required because exempt income was received, and The estate would have claimed an income distribution deduction if the exempt income were taxable. My1040ez com If you use this alternative computation, skip lines 2–8 of Worksheet C and enter the amount from line 8 of Worksheet D on line 9 of Worksheet C. My1040ez com Complete the rest of Worksheet C to determine the additional payment allowed. My1040ez com Worksheet C.
