Welcome to JustAnswer! My name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you today.

For 2017 if taxable income in a trust exceeds $12,500 the effective tax rate would be 20%.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

For income between $0 and $2,500 the long term capital gains rate is 0%

Ask Your Own Tax Question

If the irrevocable trust adjusted gross income is between $2,500 and $12,500 the effective long term capital gains tax would be 15%

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Therefore the long term capital gains rates are 0%, 15% or 20% depending on the adjusted gross income of the trust
