Distribution of income:
The trust agreement appointed Smalls Bank and Trust as its trustee with broad discretionary authority, including the Trustee’s authority to distribute income to Frank and Sally during its 20-year term. The trustee has decided to allocate a portion of the estimated taxes to the beneficiaries this year. On July 1, 2032, the Trust will terminate and the assets will be distributed equally to Frank and Sally, irrespective of any distributions the beneficiaries received during the life of the Trust (i.e. separate shares are not maintained for Frank and Sally). The Trustee has never allocated any estimated tax payments to the beneficiaries and the Trust provides that capital gains are to be treated as “principal” by the Trustee.
