The Special Need Trust may pay full amount of taxes or distribute all or part of its tax liability on beneficiaries.

If any taxable income is distributed to you - the administrator would be required to issue the form K-1 - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1041sk1.pdf - to you as a beneficiary and to the IRS.

If you received that form and it is indicated your share of taxable income - you need to report such income on your tax return. If you received the form and it does not report any taxable income for you - you do not need to report anything on your tax return.

If you did not received the form - please contact the trust company.
