Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
It is not unusual for an entity to list a return as final and then file another tax return; so if another return is needed it would simply be filed (and again marked as final).
If the 4300 is the amount that was deposited, you said principal, and is just a return from a taxable account (not an IRA or Roth IRA) then none of that return is income that counts toward the $600 filing requirement.
If you do not file another return for the estate and you are the sole beneficiary then you will include the $8 interest on your individual return along with your other interest earned during the year when you file.
Please ask if you want more discussion or need clarification.
yes the 4300 was in basically a savings type account that earned interest and it earned approx. 8.00 for this year before the check was written to the estate
It seems as though there is not a filing requirement for the estate since there is not a need to file if gross income is less than $600.
If you got the $8 of interest than that amount is to be reported on your return.
Please ask again if you want more discussion or need clarification.
thank you. in this scenario just to make sure I am correct, a 1041 is not required due to the income for the estate to be less than 600. Therefore no K-1 is completed. I just show on my personal return 1040 8 of interest income.
thank you for your help and have a great day.
