My father passed away in November, 1998. He had a revocable trust under his SSN with my mother as administrator. After all the paperwork cleared in Spring of 1999, the trust had a new Tax ID number (not my father's SSN). My mother sold off the remaining assets in the trust, and now I am faced with preparing a return. What return do I file? (1040, 1041, ??). Can I do this myself or should I seek help?. Thanx. Tim. From the information you gave it is hard to answer your question.Why did the Tax ID number change. Did an attorney for the estate request a new number? A new number would not have been issued without a request. Knowing why the number was issued may help answer the question. Who was the beneficiary of the estate? If your mother and the assets went directly to her she would include the sale on her 1040 since she owned the assets when sold. Might want to consult an attorney to make sure you are reading the trust correctly and to tell you what forms to file. Hire the attorney for a 1/2 discussion.
