02/27/2014 (12:25 am): Version 2014-058 is now available for immediate download. Please refer to e-mail for details.

02/26/2014 (8:15 am): Version 2014-057 is now available for immediate download.

02/25/2014 (5:00 pm): Version 2014-056 is now available for immediate download. It resolves the several issues on Schedule D and Form 8949 (new this year for estates and trusts) that were reported during the past 48 hours.

It also restores continuation Schedule D-1 for capital gains being shown (as aggregate numbers) on Lines 1a and 8a of Schedule D. Although the IRS announced that Schedule D-1 will no longer be used in 2013 and later, that schedule is still useful (as an observant user pointed out) as a non-filing report that can be used to reconcile against the original data.

Also, we received permission yesterday to share an outstanding article by John Goldsbury of U.S. Trust entitled “Dealing with the 23.8% tax on trust capital gains: 21 ways (and counting) to have a trust’s capital gain taxed to the beneficiary”. This could be helpful as you consider making distributions on or before 3/6/2014 in order to shift capital gains from the fiduciary’s 23.8% maximum rate to lower rates on beneficiary K-1s for 2013 purposes. You may download this article from the above list of download files, right below “Visual Tax Table”.

02/22/2014 (12:30 pm): The 2013 fiduciary income tax update (1041 plus 12 states) is now available for immediate download.
