Irs Form 1041 Instructions 2016 Demand Assistance

so welcome everyone we're gonna spend.about a half an hour so kind of going.through a completing a 1041 for estates.and trusts utilizing the crosslink.desktop product offerings so let's go.ahead and kind of go what we'll have a.day we'll look or the agenda for this.particular call first of all I do want.to start with an overview of what.Crossing business includes 10:41 is the.topic for today but I do want to kind of.visit what the different kinds of.returns we can do within our business.package are and after that a true.introduction to form 1040 1 which is for.federal tax return in the state for its.states and trusts I want to talk about.the components of form 1041 will.actually even look at an PDF of the 1041.that the government issues and then what.we're going to do is we're going to talk.about basic through put a form 1041 in.other words utilizing the crosslink.program the easiest way to get from top.to bottom when doing a 1041 return now.we'll start with again an overview of.crossing business and when we talk about.crossing business the first thing you.need to know is it provides prepares the.ability to complete the following types.of federal returns we introduced this.product three or four years ago of four.or five years ago now and we're so.excited about the idea that it sits on.the same platform as our desktop.products for 1040 and so with that these.are the different things that it can.take care of the 1065 which is.informational an information return.pertaining to partnership income the.1120 which is for corporate income tax.returns 1120s which is 4s corpse on top.of that the 990 which is a return for.federally tax-exempt organization and.then of course the 1041 which is the one.we're going to delve into for today but.before we get into the 1041 just some.things to note about all of our business.different types are the different types.of business returns they're all.accessible from the business returns tab.in the crosslink program and on top of.that if you don't have access to.business returns tab you need to contact.your cross-linked account or sales.manager and that simply means that you.know for some reason or another either.it hasn't been purchased or there might.be some kind of issue which they'll be.able to help you out with Christ.uses the same methodology as crossing.10:40 so my hope is is that most of you.have looked at or worked in a 1040.program as well and one of the exciting.things is the way that we mirrored it so.that we could work the same types of.methodologies that we utilize within the.1040 program can be used when doing.these different types of business.returns what do I mean by that first of.all there's a business return summary.and that's in lieu of the work in.progress um so it's your landing page.and gives you the state of your business.returns at any given time there's an.attached forms which includes client.data document archive all the forms have.been added and the refund amount or the.amount owing exactly the same as you'll.find in our desktop product for 1040 you.can also access the actual form itself.whether it be the ten sixty five to ten.forty one etc any one of the five that.we have from the attach form so when.you're in the attached forms and in fact.we're going to talk about this when we.get into throughput one of the things.that you're going to see is is that it's.important to be able to go right to the.1040 one to fill out particular fields.in that particular return cross link.business when it uses the same.methodologies other things to keep in.mind the active window and the active.window is what's found down at the.bottom and we always like to say hey if.you don't know all you have to do is.look below and it's going to tell you.exactly what's required in any field.that you're in and of course the active.window also includes icons for choices.worksheets and form links exactly the.same as what you would find in our.desktop 1040 product now it's a form.space product there's one difference and.that is that last year we introduced an.interview mode or what we call return.interview in our 1040 product however it.is completely foreign space when we talk.about business return so we do not have.an interview mode at this particular.time so you'll always be adding the.clothes you'll be doing your client data.and be going into 10:41 itself and on.top of that one of the things you're.going to be doing is you're going to be.adding the forms that you want it is.your responsibility as the tax.professional to begin to understand.exactly what forms need to be added to a.business return.da Brat financial data importing is.available so if you have QuickBooks or 0.or any of those types of things that is.a capability that can be found within.our business package and you'd go under.the return tab and you'll see financial.data importing capabilities and when a.moment we'll do is we will actually go.into the program itself into the.business program and I can show you.where you can find that also if note is.that paperless office features and text.messaging are all integrated the exact.same things that you find in our 1040.program are going to be available in our.business packages as well so before we.get into the 1041 one of the things I.want to do is just quickly pop into the.tip into our business returns themselves.one of the things you'll notice right.right away is again in lieu of the work.in progress summary the person you'll.see as a business return summary and of.course you can go ahead and you can.select your returns and as you select.returns you're going to be able to see.that here is 990 1041 1065 1120 asses.and all of the different ones that we've.just made reference to and if I were to.go into something like a 1065 or yeah in.this case I'll just choose a 1055 if at.any big take pictures of time I wanted.to import data.I would simply go to my return and in.there you'll see import financial data.capabilities are available ok so at a.very high level just wanted to introduce.all the different kinds of returns that.are available through our business.package in 990 1041 which is what we're.going to be making reference today 1065.partnerships 1120s and 1120 asses are.all available for a business package ok.now at this time I'm going to go ahead.and go back to my business return.summary and we'll go begin talking about.the 1041 itself so an introduction to.form 1041 before we start I think it's.really important for everyone to.understand a disclaimer and that this.webcast will building will not delve.into tax theory so again I'm going to be.showcasing two different places where.you can put things in the 1041 form.itself when you're doing when you're.doing a return so we'll focus on the.navigation across the business software.when completing returns for estates and.trusts but if you want instructions or.tax theory pertaining specifically to.completing a 1041.the very first point place will want to.point you to is the Irish government.website of course when you do that you.can go to irs.gov and go to forms and.instructions and in the search field we.can put for 1041 and when doing so.you're going to get instructions for.completing a 1041 and there's a lot of.additional information that can be found.there as well so when we talk about when.we talk about a 1041 the first thing we.have to ask is what is it it's the US.income tax return for estates and trusts.it's that simple and you know what a.trust or a decedent's estate is a.separate legal entity for federal tax.purposes so it is considered an entity.amongst itself not as not an individual.like a 1040 or a corporation is.considered at the own it's a its own.entity and it does have one major.distinction between an individual return.a 1040 and a 1041 and that is that a.trust or a decedent's estate is allowed.and income distribution deduction for.distributions to its beneficiaries.to figure out this deduction the.fiduciary completes Schedule B which is.found in the body of the 10 excuse me in.the form 1041 the reason why I bring.this up is in a moment we'll actually.show you the different components of the.1041 and sure enough you'll find that.the Schedule B can be found right in the.middle of it.top of that who filed it who files a.1041 well the fiduciary of a domestic.students estate trust for bankruptcy.state files the phone 1041 to report any.of the following the income deductions.gains losses etc and the estate or trust.the income that is either accumulated or.held for future distributions or.distributed currently to its.beneficiaries any income tax liability.of the estate for trust.employment taxes on wages paid to.household employees now I got this.directly from that same government.website that we talked about so it is.important to understand simply who is.the one that filed these types of things.if the fiduciary is going to be the one.that's filing and of course you'll be.working with the fiduciary has the.professional tax preparer when must it.be filed when do these have to be filed.well it's kind of very similar to the.1040 in one one regard it there if the.if following a calendar year is for the.estate or trust just form 1041 and any.correlating k1 which by the way there is.a responsibility that they get sent to.the beneficiaries by the tax.professional for them before the.fiduciary of course the fiduciary is.working with you folks they have to do.the same family deadlines as the.individual tax returns the 1040 so in.other words as an example it's usually.April 15th however if there's a holiday.or a follows on the weekend it may be.April 17th 18th whatever it might be but.it's going to follow that same that same.calendar schedule now for fiscal year.estates and trusts the from 1041 in any.correlated k1 has to be filed by the.15th day of the fourth month following.the close of the tax year and as I said.before one of the responsibilities of.the fiduciary which means that you as.professional working with Epidaurus has.responsibilities in the copy became one.specific to each beneficiary has to be.sent to that beneficiary so in other.words it doesn't have to be done by the.end of the first month of the year or.anything but by the time you get you get.to that that filing date a k1 has to.have been sent out to the beneficiaries.as well to each one of the beneficiaries.next up I literally want to talk about.the components of the 1041 and so we're.talking about the actual form itself.we're going to kind of look at it and.then what we're going to do is we're.going to compare it to what it looks.like within our program itself so the.form 1040 one does consist of the.following sections first of all there's.an administrative information section.that's right at the top and it's going.to include the information on the estate.or trust you the fiduciaries.responsibility in the number of k1.schedules that are going to be included.it's going to include income related.information pertaining to the estate or.trust as well as deduction related.information pertaining to the same he.stayed the trust hilary's includes tax.and payments related information and an.area for the signature lines for the.fiduciary and paid preparer so that's.all going to be found on the first page.of the 1041 in fact let's go ahead and.take a look at that right now and you'll.notice right here at the top here is the.1041 it will start with the.administrative information and when.you're in our program we actually make.reference to this as being the client.data just like when you see that same.type of thing in the 1040 we use during.client data here will be the income it.flies it'll need to be your.responsibility to fill out the.deductions the tax and total payments.and of course where the signatures will.take place from both the fiduciary as.well as for yourself as the tax.professional.additionally the 1041 includes the.following to facilitate accurate and.complete calculations you'll actually.see this on what's known as page two and.then on page two you're going to find a.schedule a section for charitable.deductions Schedule B for income.distribution deductions you're going to.find a schedule G for tax computation.and another area called other.information it's simply to gather the.rest of the needed information to.complete and accurate calculations for.this particular type of return again.going back to the 1041 itself you'll.notice that this is all found on page.two your schedule a your schedule B your.schedule G as well as other information.now cross-linked 1041 actually provides.worksheets to assist in determining.these things the deductions which will.populate associated fields in the 1041.as well as distribution so at this.particular time one of the things I can.show you very quickly is like going into.the program itself if I were to go ahead.and open up a 1041 which we have here.run just a moment choose any one of.these but you'll notice that over on our.attached forms list which is what we.were talking about before how it mirrors.what our 1040 program looks like but.over here you'll see both the deduction.worksheet that's available to you as.well as the distribution worksheet and.what we're going to do is when we get to.the point where we're talking about.throughput it is important that you.determine the income and the exactions.on this but then after that use these.worksheets to see where this want to be.distributed or where the deductions need.to take place.you.other forms that are commonly associated.with filing a 1041 first of all there.will be an 88 79 and that's for the IRS.e-file signature authorization for the.form 1041.of course we see dat 879 all the time in.the 1040 is actually referred to as the.88-79 F when doing a 1041 return and if.we go ahead and we take a look at the.program again you'll notice right here.on the attached forms you will see the.88-79 instyle authorization form.on top of that there's a scheduled D for.capital gains and losses and again these.are the most commonly forms that you're.going to add to your particular 1041.when you're doing it you'll use the.schedule report gains and losses from.the sale exchange of capital assets v.estate or trust and it's to be carried.to line four on the 1041 so what I'm.talking about is and we'll show you in.just a moment literally when you.complete the Schedule B that information.will then populate on line four of the.actual 1041 there's a schedule I four.alternative minimum tax for States and.trust and you'll complete part three of.the distribution worksheet for.assistance in this particular area again.remember I told you about.there is a deduction worksheet and a.distribution worksheet on the.distribution which you'll see a part.three which will pertain specifically to.the alternative minimum tax now there.are less common forms of course they're.all kinds of different forms that can be.attached but we have things that are.such as a Schedule J or four and 41:36.well just like you would find in our.regular 1040 program the next thing that.you're going to want to know is you're.going to find any one of these which.we'll showcase in just a moment simply.by adding the form or adding the form.function key.okay.that it's time to begin talking about.true basic input throughput excuse me so.how is it that you work through the 1041.utilizing our software the first thing.to note is after establishing their turn.by entering and confirming an EIN all.trusts have to have it ìin and so with.that I'm going to go ahead and I'm going.to cut back to the program itself and if.I were in the work-in-progress.or what we call literally one when we.are when the business side of things is.the big business return summary and of.course at that point if I want to add.new it's going to ask me for my employer.identification number so with that I'm.going to go ahead and put one in.do this.you.you.now you'll notice that this particular.time I also have to get the 1041 so that.we know that we're doing in the state of.trust and what that will do is it will.literally populate a brand-new 1041.using that yeah I am what you see right.up at the top and of course what we were.talking about before all the things that.we would mention and how is truly.mirrors our 1040 product on the left.hand side you're going to see the.attached forms and it's going to include.the return the 1021 itself the two.worksheets at mid reference to a blank.k1 as well as an 88 79 for afoul.authorization I also said before that.down at the bottom if you had trouble.with a particular area as an example the.estate of trusting didn't understand.them but that meant you can always look.below and so in this particular case it.says it needs the entity name and that.you also see icons for choices worksheet.performance all the things we talked.about before we also talked about how.you add forms and when you add forms.these are all the different federal.forms that are associated with doing a.1041 and just like in our 1040 product.very nice features if you don't know the.actual number of the form or schedule.but you do have an idea of what it's.called of course can utilize our index.our index will do this advertising you.can look the things that you are trying.to find.so going back whatever next thing we're.going to do is we're actually going to.go into in return 1041 at which we.filled out much of the information and.we'll go back to the points that we're.trying to get across here so after.establishing return by entering and.confirming the ein the next logical.thing you're going to do is start by.completing the client data just like and.what we refer to that when we were.talking about the 1041 as in the form.that's published by the IRS that's.simply the administrative information.that found at the top and of course.you'll have a responsibility the estate.or trust name the fiduciary information.that whether or not text messaging is.okay which is going to be an important.piece if you do want to send text.messages to the fiduciary you know with.any kind of follow up questions address.information the state or trust.information banking information prepare.information client referral which is.completely optional as well as key file.security information first pop into the.program itself to take a look at this so.when we are in the client data which is.where we are right now here of course.was the basic administrative information.again let me point out the importance of.text messaging if you want to stay in.contact with the fiduciary by way of.text messaging this has to be selected.along with the represented phone number.has to be a cell number and you have to.ISTEP establish who the carrier is going.to be when that becomes the case of.course if you wanted to send a text.message to the care individual you could.do so.the address information of the of the.exact actual state of trust.options prepare information.referre which of course is completely.optional.finally we finish up with D file.security information these are the.different things that have to be.completed as far as the client data is.concerned after you've completed the.client data next up is you'll want to.add the incoming sections into the form.1041 using the appropriate worksheets.and/or form links so this is where it.kind of varies normally when you're.doing a regular type of return the next.area that you would do is you would add.things like w2 in this particular.instance it's your responsibility to.determine with the income and deductions.are that are associated with this so.let's go back into the return itself and.you'll notice that at this time the best.way or the easiest way for throughput on.this is to actually go to the 1041 and.at that particular point they'll begin.filling out information pertaining to.income as well as deductions and of.course to make sure that whatever you're.doing you to utilize the form links and.worksheets that are associated with.these areas this will help you complete.the information that's required as far.as what kind of income was made by the.estate or trust as well as what the.deductions are.after that what you want to do is add.any appropriate form schedules needed to.capture other credits deductions or.relevant information pertaining to these.data trusts and one of the things that.we are talking about before is is that.you have a complete list of the.different forms that you can add so as.an example is a rental property you need.add a Schedule B or whatever it might be.all that's available by simply going up.to the add forms piece so you start with.the income any basic deductions and then.any additional forms which again delves.into the tax theory piece of this whole.thing but you are going to be adding.those forms and then that will give a.complete picture of the state of the.estate if you will or trust hey after.that you're going to complete review the.exactions worksheet and what's found in.the deduction for trees to the.determination of direct and indirect.deductions the application of deductions.against income by type and deductions to.be directly a portrait and take a look.at this you should also complete the.distribution worksheet which will.complete these different parts and we.talked about part 3 a little bit earlier.when you're talking about alternative.minimum tax items that you might want to.consider so let's go back into the.return itself and you'll notice that.even after we finished the income and.the deductions pieces to this whole.thing it is important that you utilize.the deductions worksheet to see if.there's any difference as far as direct.and indirect deductions allocations and.where you want those things allocated as.well as distribution worksheet those are.both things that even if you if you.literally aren't going to be making any.changes it's a good place to do a review.of the things that have been input into.the return itself.now you can add and complete the.separate K ones for each one of the.beneficiaries please remember that as.you advocate once there's going to be.administrative information that has to.be entered the worksheet for beneficiary.share of distribute income a part 1 part.2 and a part 3 which we're going to all.look at right here it's very.straightforward and can be found under.the k1 and you add as many k ones as you.want as many as there are beneficiaries.for a particular trust or state so going.back into the return itself one of the.things you'll notice is that we can go.to a k1 and in the k1 the very first.thing you're going to see on top is if.you need to email or would like an email.a copy of the k1 to the beneficiary you.can do so by checking this box and.providing the email address now quick.follow-up note on this is if you do.choose this approach towards getting the.because again as the contestant to do.she area more specifically you working.with the fiduciary is the tax.professional if you want to send a k1.and be show by email one of the things.you can do is you can check here but.then you'll want to utilize your k1.manager and when you utilize your k1.manager you'll go ahead and select the.individual you will have to have your.text messaging set up with your gmail.account but once that is done you will.go ahead and select the individual and.then you can go ahead an email that will.send the email literally to the.beneficiary and it will be encrypted so.doesn't getting better than that so.again in the beneficiary confirmation up.on top if you want to send through Sumi.McKay what information information.pertaining to emailing things to the.beneficiary you can do so after that the.the information that I just shared on.the of with the bullet points I'll.follow the worksheet for benneferre.share of distribution the information.about the estate or trust the.information about the beneficiary.remember this will be the first time.you're actually stating who that.particular individual is or entity is.and then the beneficiary share of.current your income deductions credits.and other items and of course this will.come directly from the information that.the fiduciary is providing you with.regard to the estate or trust.after that you're going to complete the.88-79 which is your email signature.authorization performed 1041 and then.your final step very much you'll.recognize this as you've done 10 20s.before and that is that you're going to.go through your verification process.which we'll show you in just a moment.and then choosing on how you want to.have it printed if you want to print.hard copies of course your print then.for pure signatures and if you want to.go paperless your particular signatures.and then of course your print and then.oh that will cook things into your.document archive and please note that.you can also use the document archive.for relevant information or documents.then you can either scan using one or.one of our standard or not our scanners.but what's integrated into our program.or you can use your own desktop copiers.if it has scanning capabilities remember.that you do need to print copies of the.K ones for distribution to any one of.your beneficiaries so pop it up real.quick we'll go back into the program for.just a moment and we'll put all the.information in for a particular.particular return in this case though.the Hobart Green estate we start with a.verification once it verifies clear and.by the way if there are any things that.need to be fixed on this is exactly the.same coin click repair resolution that.you find in our 1040 program then you'll.hit OK you'll go up to your print for.the print package itself and of course.if you want to use remote signature.capabilities we have it if you want to.use the signature with a signature pad.or if you want to print all of those are.available to you just as they aren't.with the 1040.now that really does take us from the.beginning to the end in completing a.1041 test bars - for this concern so.what I'd like to do at this time is go.ahead and then I'll turn it over to John.alright thank you very much - very.informative as you saw on Steve's screen.there you'll see our social media links.once again we encourage you to follow us.on those sites for the main reasons

No, taxes are handled separately between state and federal governments in the United States.The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) is a federal, not state agency. You will be required to fill out the the necessary tax documentation for your federal income annually and submit them to the IRS by April 15th of that year. You can receive extensions for this; but you have to apply for those extensions. As far as state taxes go, 41 states require you to fill out an income tax return annually. They can either mail you those forms or they be downloaded from online. They are also available for free at various locations around the state.Nine states have no tax on personal income, so there is no need to fill out a state tax return unless you are a business owner.
