I'm sorry I can't see what you are doing but consider this: The final year of the estate shouldn't have a tax since you will distribute all the income and corpus to the beneficiaries and THEY pay their tax on it, and if it is in the same tax year as the prtial distributions, ignore that and distribute everything (inlcuding the partial) on the finaol K-1s), leaving nothing in the estate to pay taxses on. If the $416 is the prior year of the estate income tax, just pay it out of capital (not an expense).

You shouldn't need a pro. This is not rocket science.
