Trust Tax Preparation FAQs

  • How much does a trust tax return cost?

    It can be difficult to determine an exact price for trust tax returns, as each situation differs. However, as an estimate, for a Form 1041 that covers fiduciary, trust, and estate taxes, a Form 706, used for a decedent's estate, and a Form 990, used for a not-for-profit organization, the minimum fee is $600, $2,000, and $750, respectively.

  • Can a CPA prepare a trust?

    CPAs, unless they are also licensed attorneys, are not responsible for drafting trusts. If you need to draw up a trust, reach out to a licensed attorney. However, a CPA can skillfully prepare your trust income tax returns, as well as check the drafted trust for any potential tax consequences.
