Seminar Description: This seminar provides a review of the issues faced when preparing trust filings for deceased taxpayers. The focus is return preparation and related planning, including: review of relevant tax issues, engagement management, up-to-date source of relevant tax research, and reviewing and understanding CRA assessing practices. While the seminar will touch on some estate planning issues, these will generally focus on matters which can be addressed in the course of preparing these returns.

The seminar is divided between a review of technical tax issues related to such returns, and a series of practice case studies to illustrate the concepts and allow participants to apply their knowledge to practical filing situations commonly encountered in practice.
Seminar Outline:
  • Engagement management
  • Tax compliance in respect of the establishment of a testamentary trust
  • Identification of issues regarding the implications of the death of a taxpayer
  • Compliance related to the graduate rate estate of the deceased
  • Compliance matters with respect to distributions from the estate and the establishment of post-distribution testamentary trusts
  • Issue identification with respect to life-interest trusts and the compliance matters relating thereto
  • Estate accounting
  • Identification of GST/HST matters
  • The practical application of the above through the preparation and discussion of case studies
Who Will Benefit: Practitioners who wish to expand their personal tax skills to encompass preparing estate and testamentary trust income tax returns.
