This tax return is used to report the income, deductions, gains, losses, etc. of the estate or trust; the income that is either accumulated or held for distribution to beneficiaries; or, the income tax liability of the estate or trust. ATTACHMENTS A decedent’s estate or a trust (except for a grantor type trust) is a separate legal entity for federal and state tax purposes. A decedent’s estate comes into existence at the time of death of an individual. A trust may be created during an individual’s life (inter vivos) or at the time of the individual’s death under a will (testamentary). If the trust instrument contains certain provisions, then the person creating the trust (the grantor) is treated as the owner of the trust’s assets. Such a trust is a grantor type trust. It is very important to provide supporting documentation for income, deductions, and credits claimed on the IT41 form. If you are claiming a refund, please attach a complete copy of the Federal 1041 Form. If you are not claiming a refund, you may attach (at least) the first 2 pages of the Federal 1041 Form, along with any pertinent schedules such as the K1 or verification for deductions or credits claimed on the Indiana return. Also, Indiana does not have its own Fiduciary Schedule K-1. If you have beneficiaries, please provide a copy of the Federal Schedule K-1’s so we can verify income, deductions, and credits. A decedent’s estate or trust figures its gross income in much the same manner as an individual. There are many deductions and credits allowed to individuals that are also allowed to estates and trusts. An estate or trust may be allowed an income distribution deduction for distributions to beneficiaries (heirs). This deduction is calculated at the federal level and determines the amount of any distributions taxed to the beneficiaries. For this reason, an estate or trust is sometimes referred to as a “pass-through” entity. The beneficiary, and not the estate or trust, pays income tax on the individual’s distributive share of income. Federal Schedule K-1 is used to notify the beneficiaries of the amounts to be included on their individual income tax returns. If you are claiming credit for Indiana taxes withheld, you must attach a withholding statement (W-2, 1099R, or WH18) so we can verify that payments have been made for you in an Indiana Withholding account. COMPOSITE RETURN A composite return may be filed on behalf of nonresident beneficiaries. The individual nonresident beneficiaries will be relieved of the obligation to file an individual adjusted gross income tax return unless they have income from other Indiana sources. Most estates and trusts file the Form 1041 at the Federal level and file the Form IT-41 at the Indiana level. Some estates and trusts have additional or different requirements. Any beneficiary that is a fiduciary (trust or estate) or a resident individual must be excluded from the composite return. All beneficiaries must be subject to the same tax treatment. Many of the determinations that need to be made are done at the federal level by the Internal Revenue Service. Therefore, you must complete the federal Form 1041, US Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts before you begin filling out the Indiana IT-41 form. If you need to contact the Internal Revenue Service, you can access the IRS website at www.irs.gov to download forms and instructions. You may also order federal forms and publications by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). The following limitations and conditions shall apply to those beneficiaries included in the composite return: a) any short term capital gain (loss) plus any long term capital gain (loss) specifically allocated to beneficiaries shall be allowed subject to any “passive activity” loss limitations pursuant to IRC Section 469 and capital loss limitations imposed on noncorporate taxpayers by IRC Section 1211; If the IRS instructs you to complete a Form 706, US Estate Tax Return, then the Indiana-equivalent form is the IH-6 Indiana Inheritance Tax Return. Forms are available on our website at www.in.gov/dor/3509.htm, or you may contact their office at (317) 232-2154. b) no deduction shall be permitted for interest paid on investment indebtedness under Section 163(d) of the IRC (limitation on investment interest indebtedness); AMENDED RETURN An amended return must be filed to report changes to an originally-filed IT-41. Use an IT-41 form and check the Amended Return box on the front of the return. Please attach a complete copy of the amended Federal return, if applicable, and a brief statement as to the reason for the amendment. c) no deduction shall be permitted for net operating losses; d) no personal exemptions shall be permitted; e) no deduction shall be allowed for charitable contributions allowed or allowable pursuant to Section 170 of the IRC; f) any college credit for individual contributions is limited on the composite return to the lower of each beneficiary’s state tax liability or $100 (no joint credit with spouse is permitted); 1 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com CONTACT US g) no credit is permitted for taxes paid to other states; h) no credit carryovers are permitted. If you need additional information, you may contact us: • on the Internet at www.in.gov/dor; • by email at webmaster@dor.IN.gov; • by telephone at (317) 232-2067 Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; • by fax at (317) 615-2697 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; or, • in person at any of our district offices. Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To find the nearest district office, check out the list at www.in.gov/dor/3390.htm. i) any refund of state and/or county taxes will be remitted directly to the trust. Composite Filing Procedures 1) (a) Prepare a comprehensive schedule which shows the calculation of tax attributable to each individual non resident beneficiary. Indicate the names, addresses and Social Security numbers of all nonresident individuals required to be included in the composite return. Subject to the limitations above, separately compute the Indiana tax liability of each individual nonresident beneficiary. Attach this schedule to the IT-41 Indiana Fiduciary Income Tax Return. ENTITY TYPES The entity type is determined by the Internal Revenue Service. The entity type on the Indiana form must agree with the entity type designated on the Federal Form 1041. Please check the appropriate box on the form. (b) Composite income means each individual nonresident beneficiary’s distributive share of income derived from sources within Indiana. • BANKRUPTCY ESTATE (c) Any limitations imposed on the respective beneficiaries by Section 469 of the Internal Revenue Code (passive activity loss rules) will apply to the composite return. 2) On Form IT-41, line 11, enter the total tax liability of those nonresidents included in the composite return. 3) Insert the total tax withheld on behalf of the nonresident beneficiaries included in the composite schedule on line 14 of the IT-41 form. This amount plus the total tax withheld on behalf of any nonresident beneficiaries not included in the composite return should equal the WH-3 Annual Reconcili- ation of Withholding. Form WH-3 is mailed automatically to the payer in January of each year. • ESBT (ELECTING SMALL BUSINESS TRUST) 4) On a monthly or quarterly basis, using Form WH-1 Employer’s Withholding Tax Return, submit withholding tax payments on behalf of all nonresident beneficiaries. 5) Form WH-18 Indiana Miscellaneous Withholding Tax Statement for Nonresidents has four copies. Copy A: File with the WH-3 Annual Withholding Reconciliation by February 28 of each year Copy C: Attach to the composite return Special rules apply when figuring the tax on the S portion of an ESBT. The S portion of an ESBT is the portion of the trust that consists of stock in one or more S corporations and is not treated as a grantor type trust. Following the federal guidelines, the tax on the S portion must be figured separately from the tax on the remainder of the ESBT (if any) and attached to the return. Report the tax due on the Indiana portion of income from an Electing Small Business Trust (ESBT) on Line 11 of the IT-41 return. You must attach a separate statement showing the income and tax computation using the 3.4% (.034) Indiana state tax rate. • GRANTOR TRUST Copy B: Give to the recipient for their records A bankruptcy estate of an individual will file Form IT-41 with an attached copy of the individual’s income tax return. The fiduciary return will report only the amount of tax computed on the individual income tax return. If there is an amount of tax due, report the tax on Line 11 of the IT-41. The payment should be submitted with the IT-41 return. Copy D: Keep for the payer’s records The fiduciary filing a composite return for the nonresident beneficiaries is liable for the tax shown on the return, and for any additional tax, interest, and penalty as a result of a subsequent audit and examination. In the case of a Grantor Trust, the income is taxed at the Individual level; therefore, the IT-41 is filed as an informa- tional return only identifying the trust and the grantor. Please attach a statement (or a copy of the federal return) which discloses income and deductions attributable to the grantor. No financial information should be entered on the IT-41. • GUARDIAN OF A WARD’S ESTATE The composite schedule is due with the fiduciary return. If the IRS allows the fiduciary an extension on its federal income tax return, the corresponding due dates for its Indiana income tax returns are automatically extended for the same period, plus 30 days. 2 A resident guardianship having gross income exceeding its exemptions for the taxable year will report its income on Form IT-40 Indiana Individual Income Tax Return. A nonresident guardianship with Indiana income must file Form IT-40PNR Indiana Part-year or Nonresident Individual Income Tax Return. American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com • RETIREMENT PLAN proved request for extension of filing the federal fiduciary return and make payment of at least 90% of the estimated Indiana tax liability. The extension payment should be sent by the original due date of the return with Form IT-41ES, available from the Department’s web site (www.in.gov/dor). If no tax liability is anticipated, just attach a copy of the approved federal extension request to the IT-41 return when filing. • COMMON TRUST FUND FEDERAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER Every retirement plan having income from sources within the state of Indiana who is taxed as a trust filing Federal Form 990T must file using the IT-41 form. Please attach a copy of the Federal Form 990T to the IT-41 while filing. Also, note that the due date for filing the IT-41 is the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the taxable year. Common trust funds file a Partnership Form IT65 Return and will attach to the form a list showing each participant’s name, address, social security number, and the amount of taxable income or loss (exclusive of gains or losses from sales or exchanges of capital assets) and the participant’s share of gains or losses from sales or exchanges of capital assets. For additional information, please contact Corporate Assistance at (317) 233-4015. Every estate or trust that is required to file Form IT-41 must have a Federal Identification Number (sometimes called an EIN, Employer Identification Number). If you have not already gotten this number from the IRS, you may apply for your number: • Online by clicking on the EIN link at www.irs.gov/business/small. The EIN is issued immediately once the application information is validated. • By telephone at 1-800-829-4933 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the fiduciary’s local time zone. ESTIMATED PAYMENTS • By mailing or faxing Form SS-4 Application for Employer Identification Number. Indiana does not require trusts and estates to make fiduciary estimated payments. Fiduciaries electing to make estimated payments must use Form IT-41ES Fiduciary Estimated Tax and Extension Payment Voucher. Important: If you have not received the Federal Identification Number (Fed. ID# or EIN) and you are ready to file the return, please leave the spaces blank in the space for the ID number. Do NOT enter the decedent’s Social Security Number in the spaces for the EIN. There are no carryover provisions for estimated payments. Therefore, overpayments are not applied to the estimated account for the following year. Any overpayments will be refunded. FINAL RETURNS When an estate or trust is to be terminated, or is required to distribute current income during the taxable year and there is distributable net income, the distributable net income is allocated to the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries must report their respective shares in their IT-40 Individual Income Tax Return or IT-40 PNR Part-Year/Nonresident Individual Income Tax Return. Please do not request that estimated payments be transferred between Individual and Fiduciary accounts. These requests will be denied. Since there is not a requirement to make estimated payments, there are no penalties for the underpayment of estimated tax currently on this return. If a final distribution of assets has been made during the year, all income of the estate or trust must be reported to the beneficiaries. Please check the box on the front of the IT-41 if filing a final return. EXTENSIONS If an extension of time to file is needed, the fiduciary may request an extension of time to file. If no tax liability is anticipated, the Department accepts the federal extension of time application (Form 7004, Application for Automatic Extension Time to File Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns). It is not necessary to contact the Department prior to filing the annual IT-41 Fiduciary return. A copy of the federal extension of time must be attached to the return when it is filed.

LOSSES OR NEGATIVE ENTRIES ROUNDING TO THE NEAREST WHOLE DOLLAR Put brackets around any losses or negative entries. Example: (100.) indicates a loss of $100.00. When making your mathematical calculations on the return, you may choose to round your numbers to the nearest whole dollar. To do so, drop any cents less than 50 cents and increase amounts from 50 cents to 99 cents to the nearest whole dollar. For example: $100.32 would be $100.00. $100.65 would be $101.00. NAME AND ADDRESS Carefully enter the name of estate or trust, name and title of Fiduciary, and complete address (as they appear on the Federal Form 1041). SIGNATURE NONBUSINESS INCOME The IT-41 Form must be signed by the Fiduciary (Trustee, Executor, Personal Representative, etc.) to be considered a valid return. Income received from Indiana sources is considered Indiana income to nonresidents, except certain types of Indiana source income that are subject to tax only by the taxpayer’s state of legal residence. Interest, dividends, royalties and gains from the sale of capital assets are subject to tax only by the taxpayer’s state of legal residence unless such income results from the conduct of a trade or business in Indiana. If a trade or business is conducted in Indiana, the income should be reported as Indiana income. Income from a qualified pension, annuity, or profit sharing plan is subject to tax by the taxpayer’s state of legal residence. Lump sum distributions from qualified plans are subject to tax by the state that, at the time of distribution, is the taxpayer’s state of legal residence. Deferred compensation other than from a qualified retirement plan, accumulated vacation, bonus, severance, sick pay, and income from a stock option plan are directly attributable to services performed, and are taxable by the state where the services were performed. TAXABLE YEAR The taxable year shall be the calendar or fiscal taxable year of the taxpayer as shown on Form 1041, US Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts. WHEN TO FILE This return must be filed by the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the taxable year. For retirement plans filing Federal Form 990T, the return must be filed by the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the taxable year. WHERE TO FILE PRIOR-YEAR RETURNS Standard Paper Returns Indiana Department of Revenue Fiduciary Section PO Box 6079 Indianapolis, IN 46206-6079 RESIDENCY DETERMINATIONS 2-D Barcode Returns Indiana Department of Revenue Fiduciary Section PO Box 7231 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7231 When filing a return for a previous year, make certain to indicate the appropriate year ending date on the IT-41. There are no separate returns for filing for a previous year. For purposes of filing the Indiana Fiduciary Income Tax Return, estates and trusts are classified as either resident or nonresident. For Indiana purposes, the residence of an estate or trust is determined by the place where it is administered. Therefore, you must determine where the trustee or personal representative is located and where the records are kept for the trust or estate. WHO MUST FILE A fiduciary is a trustee of a trust, or an executor, executrix, administrator, administratrix, personal representative, or person in possession of property of a decedent’s estate. The fiduciary is responsible for filing this return. Resident estates or trusts are taxable on all income from all sources regardless of where it is earned. Therefore, resident fiduciaries must report all income wherever derived. WITHHOLDING REQUIREMENTS Trusts and estates must withhold Indiana adjusted gross income tax from certain payments or credits of income to nonresidents. The withholding agent must report the net income and tax withheld from this income on Form WH-18, Indiana Miscellaneous Withholding Tax Statement for Nonresidents. Nonresident estates and trusts are taxable in Indiana on all income derived from Indiana sources. Income derived from sources within and without Indiana shall be determined under IC 6-3-2-2. Nonresident estates and trusts must adjust federal taxable income (or loss) to reflect taxable income allocable to Indiana. 4 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Withholding is required when a trust or estate (fiduciary) distributes Indiana income (except income attributable to interest or dividends) to a non-Indiana resident beneficiary (IC 6-3-4-15). ber must appear in the block specified for “Recipient’s Federal ID or SS Number.” Following the end of the partnership’s tax year, Indianapolis Partners, Ltd. provides copies B and C of Form WH-18 to the Ohio Revocable Trust. The trust provides Copy C to John Jones for filing with John Jones’ IT-40PNR. John Jones reports the $1,000 rental income on his IT-40PNR. The trust reports the $1,000 income and $1,000 distribution deduction on the federal fiduciary return, Form 1041. The trust’s Indiana fiduciary return (IT-41) reports no taxable income due to distributions. The trust must attach a copy of the Form WH-18 showing the “pass through” of the withheld income tax to John Jones. The nonresident beneficiary is entitled to claim credit for the withheld tax when filing the Indiana IT-40PNR Part-Year or Nonresident Individual Income Tax Return. Setting up a Withholding Account for a Nonresident Shareholder, Partner, or Beneficiary If you are already registered as a nonresident withholding agent, use the designated Form WH-1 (Indiana Withholding Tax Voucher). You may use Form DB020W-NR (if you have not established a separate nonresident withholding account) to remit Indiana state income tax withholding on annual income distributions to nonresident shareholders, nonresident partners, or nonresident beneficiaries of trusts and estates. Also, include county income tax withholding for an Indiana tax-adopting Note: If there is more than one partnership or fiduciary between the withholding agent and ultimate beneficiary, the withholding agent may complete Form WH-18 to reflect the initial distribution and nominee beneficiary as if there were no intermediary entities. Intermediary entities must attach a copy of the Form WH-18 to their returns to show the ultimate nominee beneficiary. county if on Jan. 1 of the tax year this was the nonresident’s principal place of business or employment. Example: Smith Farms, Inc., an Indiana S Corporation, distrib- utes $10,000 of Indiana source farm income to the Estate of Mary Smith, an Illinois shareholder. The Estate of Mary Smith in turn distributes the income to two Illinois Trusts, the Smith Marital Trust and the Smith Credit Trust. The two trusts in turn distribute the income to Sam Smith, also a resident of Illinois. Payment is generally due within 30 days following the end of the tax year or quarter (if the liability for a quarterly period exceeds $150). However, if an entity pays or credits amounts to its non¬resident shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries one time each year, the withholding payment is due on or before the fifteenth day of the third month after the end of the taxable year. Smith Farms, Inc. would complete Form WH-18 showing the Estate of Mary Smith and Sam Smith as the nominee recipient. The Estate of Mary Smith and the two trusts would each file Form IT-41 with a copy of the Form WH-18. Sam Smith would report the $10,000 of Indiana source income on his IT-40PNR and claim credit for the $340 of withheld tax. If you have any questions regarding this form or the withholding tax, please call the Indiana Department of Revenue, Tax Administration at (317) 233-4016. Nominee Withholding Procedures If a small business corporation, partnership, or fiduciary withholds tax from income distributions to a nonresident small business corporation, partnership or fiduciary which in turn passes through the income to a nonresident shareholder, partner, or beneficiary, the original withholding agent may designate the ultimate nonresident recipient as a “Nominee” recipient who must then claim the withheld Indiana tax. FORM IT-41 LINE-BY-LINE INSTRUCTIONS LINE 1 TAXABLE INCOME Enter taxable income (after exemptions) from federal Form 1041. If there is no taxable income to report because distributions were made to beneficiaries, enter zero. If you are filing as a retirement plan and are taxable as a trust filing federal Form 990T, enter the unrelated business taxable income. Example: Indianapolis Partners, Ltd., an Indiana partnership, distributes $1,000 of Indiana source rental income to one of its partners, the Ohio Revocable Trust located in Columbus, Ohio. The Ohio Revocable Trust is a simple trust which distributes all current income to the sole beneficiary, John Jones, a resident of Ohio. Indianapolis Partners, Ltd., must withhold $34 (3.4% of $1,000) from the distribution to the Ohio Revocable Trust. LINE 2 INDIANA ADDITIONS OR ADD-BACKS Deductions allocable to tax exempt income must be used only against tax exempt income. Therefore, if interest in US Government Obligations is excludable on the Indiana Fiduciary Return, expenses related to such tax exempt income must be added back to taxable income for Indiana purposes. Indianapolis Partners, Ltd., may designate John Jones as the “nominee” recipient of the income distribution on Form WH-18. The Form WH-18 must show the names and addresses of both the Ohio Revocable Trust and John Jones. The federal identification number of the trust would appear in the recipient’s block next to the trust’s name and address. Jones’ social security num- Bonus Depreciation – You must make an exception for any bonus depreciation deduction used for property placed in service after September 11, 2001.
