I rarely think that a Fiduciary return is a good DIY project. Most people file at most a couple of those during their lifetime. I'd suggest you get some professional assistance for that. There are some elections you may want to make, particularly the selection of a fiscal year for the estate and one concerning distributions during the first 45 or 60 days of the year.


Thanks. I figured I would have to file 2 returns. I will look at the fiduciary and if it's over my head, I will seek a professional.
