I've been dealing with a similar problem. My husband's IRA just passed to me as Co-Trustee of our trust. BUT, when I die the beneficiary is our Trust. When the beneficiaries get it from the Trust, I'm afraid they will be "zonked" for the taxes due on the whole IRA. That, also, goes for all the value increase our annuities upon my death. Any solutions???(I'm 75)
