Upon completion of this course, you will be familiar with the taxation of various trusts and be able to prepare T3 trust returns and prepare T3 slips for beneficiaries.
You will learn how to optimize taxes payable on income earned by a trust by choosing to pay the taxes through the trust or allocating income to beneficiaries and having them pay the taxes on those allocations.
The Trust Tax Estimator tool, provided with this course, will help you to minimize taxes on trust income. This tool allows you to determine whether the trust or beneficiary will pay more taxes on allocated income so that tax can be paid by the trust before allocation if the beneficiary would have to pay more tax than the trust.
