Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you are a beneficiary of the trust, the trustees will need your social security number because they will be sending you a K-1 to account for your distributions from the trust.
You giving your social security number to them will in no way impact your credit.
they will have my full name, dob, and ssn. Can't this information be limited to the attorney, and not the trustee?
Whoever is responsible for filing the tax return will need the information
If the attorney is preparing the tax return, then you could request that it be limited to only him
Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
