What Is Form 1041-T

Fiduciaries use IRS Form 1041-T to allocate payments between estimated taxes and extensions for Form 1041, the income tax return for estates and trusts. This form helps trustees and estate executors designate how payments should be applied.

The IRS recommends using Form 1041-T when you want to specify how your payments are to be allocated between estimated taxes and extension payments for an estate or trust. If no allocation is made, the IRS will apply the payments in a manner deemed appropriate, which might not align with your intentions.
