Good morning James. Can you provide me a bit more information? Was this a revocable living trust that became irrevocable upon your mother's death? Or, was this set up as an irrevocable trust prior to your mother's death? And, on what part of Form 593-c do you need help? Thanks.

Irrevocable prior to her death

Seller part 2 loss or zero gain, property is being sold less than the valve at time of her death
Tax Professional: Richard, Tax Attorney replied 8 months ago

Thanks for your response. If the trust was irrevocable (and was not a grantor trust based on retaining certain controls) prior to her death and this property was put into the trust prior to her death, then her basis would not be the value of the property at her death. The property would only be eligible for the basis adjustment to fair market value if the trust was a revocable living trust that became irrevocable upon her death, was a grantor trust, or the property was transferred to the trust at her death. Otherwise, her basis would based upon her purchase price (plus the cost of improvements) and that would determine whether or not there was gain.

Is there an inherentance tax
Tax Professional: Richard, Tax Attorney replied 8 months ago

No, there would be no inheritance tax. Just a possible gain on the sale of the property if the sales price (less closing costs) exceeds the basis of the property.
