What is a fiduciary?
A fiduciary is a person or institution given the power to act on behalf of another in situations that require great trust, honesty and loyalty. Fiduciaries include accountants, attorneys, bankers, business advisors, financial advisors, mortgage brokers and real estate agents. These individuals act in another person’s best interest by setting aside their own interests. Other types of fiduciaries include executors, trustees and surrogates.
One of the fiduciary’s major duties is to ensure federal and state taxes and other financial obligations are paid before the estate or trust is passed to the heirs. At DeFreitas & Minsky CPA, our fiduciary tax planning and preparation services will provide a path to greater financial health for all parties involved.
The fiduciary of an estate must file Form 1041 if the estate had more than $600 in taxable income. With trusts, the fiduciary must file Form 1041 if the trust had any taxable income.
