A: I'm not sure what you form you are referring to, but it is very likely that you can. I would double-check your firm with an attorney or accountant, prior to submission. Rodney Alberto, Esq., 732-200-0779

A: The general answer is no. Those expenses would instead be deductible on Form 1041 when the Estate files its income tax return. -Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA,, See Disclaimer:
