Hi and welcome to Just Answer!

The federal laws allow Osage Indians to place their headright interest, restricted land and some other assets into a revokable trust with the Secretary of the Interior. The trust permits to pass these Osage Indian assets to other persons without going through legal probate.

After your husband died – the trust became irrevocable and while income will be distributed to you as a beneficiary of the trust – the trustee will issue the form K-1 which reports amounts and types of taxable income. Below are some common types of distributions and there treatments fro tax purposes depending if the individual has a certificate of competence or is a non competent.

Type of Distribution

Taxability if individual has certificate of competence, subject to SE tax, and how reported

Taxability if individual is non-competent, subject to SE tax, and how reported if taxable
