I am one of 5 beneficiaries receiving an annuity distribution following the death of a relative, approximately $20,000 of which is taxable interest. I have been looking into the tax deduction for Income in Respect of a Decedent, but I must admit that it's rather convoluted to me. I have not been able to find a very simple explanation of IRD, and I'm interested to know if this interest will be deductible as IRD on Schedule A's miscellaneous deductions line, or if I'm completely off track. Anyone out there with IRD experience who can shed any light on this situation for me?
