Customer Question

My daughter, who was 14 at the time, received a trust from her father in the form of a lump sum after he passed away in 2010. The federal taxes have been paid. My question is that I was active duty military with a legal residence of the state of FL and she was/is my dependent, but the check was mailed to our address in MO. We were living in MO due to my duty station of Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. Does my daughter have to pay state taxes to MO on this trust? I was told once by the Dept. Of Revenue "No" and now am being told "Yes" and now the amount has increased due to intereste acccrued etc... Please help

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
UNfortunately the amount would fall under MO taxation. Even though your legal residency is Florida your daughter's legal residency is what is important as well as the fact that you were residing in MO when the amount was paid.
When looking at the chart in the link below you must look at your daughter's info and not your military status for home of record

I wish I could advise differently.

Did you need more info on MO residency before you can offer a positive rating.
