Until the final year of the estate. .. On the final return capital gains can be distributed. this has to do with the concept of DNI (Distributable Net Income).

Ask Your Own Tax Question

If you can get everything done with one form 1041 (not having to do another year's return) you CAN distribute the gain.

In the event things dont get done with the first 1041 and taxes are due on capital gains on estate level. Those gains were taxes were paid will not get distributed on a k-1, correct?

That's correct
