Mark Meadows funded a trust in 2014 with Merchants Bank named as trustee. He paid no gift tax on the transfer. The trustee in its discretion is to pay out income, but not principal, to Mark’s children, Angela and Barry, for 15 years. Then the trust will terminate, and its assets, including accumulated income, will be paid to Angela and Barry in equal amounts. (Separate shares are not to be maintained.) In the current year, the trustee distributes $3,000 to Angela and $9,000 to Barry. The trust paid estimated federal income taxes of $6,000 from the principal account and reported the following additional results for the current year. The trust instrument requires trustee’s fees to be paid from principal.
