Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
No, this is not taxable. This is simply an inheritance which is not subject to either Federal or Utah state inheritance taxes. The living trust was simply set up to avoid probate by having the estate distributable pursuant to the trust agreement rather than the will. So, you neither need to report the disbursement of these funds on your tax return nor do you owe any taxes on it.
