Schedule K-1

 

An estate or trust required to file Form 1041 might pass certain items of income and deductions to its beneficiaries. So, if you’re a beneficiary, you must pay tax on your share of income. However, you can also claim credits and deductions on that income.

The estate or trust will send you a Schedule K-1 showing what you must report on your return. The K-1 can include:

  • Investment income, like interest, dividends, and capital gains
  • Passive income, like rental income
  • Deductions to reduce your taxable income
  • Credits to reduce your tax

How you report the income depends upon the type of income you’re reporting.
