Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax Return (Includes Schedule D)
2020 IL-1041 Instructions

Illinois Department of Revenue Use for tax year ending on or after December 31, 2020, and before December 31, 2021. IL-1041 Instructions 2020 What’s New? • Schedules NLD, Illinois Net Loss Deduction, and UB/NLD, Unitary Illinois Net Loss Deduction, are no longer schedules to be completed and sent in with the return. Both schedules have been redesigned as worksheets to be completed to assist you with calculating your Illinois Net Loss Deduction. The worksheets are not required to be submitted with your return and should be retained with your records. See Appendices C and E in these instructions. • A checkbox has been added to Step 7, Line 58, to indicate if there is credit carryforward to a different FEIN on the taxpayer’s final return. A detailed statement must be attached to your return. See Step 7, Line 58 instructions for more information. • A note has been added to the Line 1 instructions about Federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. • If you are reporting a discharge of indebtedness loss on Step 4, Line 28, a detailed statement is to be enclosed with your return and the box checked in Step 1, Line N. • Schedule I, Income Received, has been eliminated and Step 1, Line K, has been removed. Instead, all Schedules K-1-P and K-1-T you received must be attached to your return. Reminder: Taxpayers making an extension payment, an estimated payment, a voluntary prepayment of their tax liabilities, or a return payment should pay electronically using MyTax.Illinois.gov or mail Form IL-1041-V, Payment Voucher for Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax.

You must file Form IL-1041 if you are a fiduciary of a trust or an estate, and the trust or the estate • has net income or loss as defined under the Illinois Income Tax Act (IITA), regardless of any deduction for distributions to beneficiaries; or • is a resident of Illinois and files, or is required to file, a federal income tax return (regardless of net income or loss). (See “When is nonbusiness income allocable to Illinois” to help you complete your Form IL-1041.); or • is a nonresident of Illinois but received income from Illinois sources which was not reported as pass-through withholding on Form IL-1120-ST, Form IL-1065 or Form IL-1041. You must also file Illinois Schedule NR (Form IL-1041), Nonresident Computation of Fiduciary Income, to determine the income that is taxed by Illinois during the tax year. For more information, see Illinois Schedule NR (Form IL-1041) with revision date 12/17 or later. “Grantor” trusts are not required to file Form IL-1041. Estates do not pay replacement tax. If the trust or estate is a charitable organization exempt from federal income tax by reason of IRC Section 501(a), it is not required to file Form IL-1041. However, unrelated business taxable income, as determined under IRC Section 512, is subject to tax (without any deduction for the Illinois income tax) and must be reported on Form IL-990-T, Exempt Organization Income and Replacement Tax Return, instead of Form IL-1041. For more information, see Form IL-990-T instructions. What forms must I use? In general, you must obtain and use forms prescribed by the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR). Separate statements not on forms provided or approved by IDOR will not be accepted and you will be asked for appropriate documentation. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in failure to file penalties, a delay in the processing of your return, or a delay in the generation of any overpayment. Additionally, failure to submit appropriate documentation when requested may result in a referral to our Audit Bureau for compliance action. Trusts and Estates must complete Form IL-1041. Do not send a computer printout with line numbers and dollar amounts attached to a blank copy of the return. Computer generated printouts are not acceptable, even if they are in the same format as IDOR’s forms. Computer generated forms from an IDOR-approved software developer are acceptable. Form IL-1041 (R12/20) is for tax year ending on or after December 31, 2020, and before December 31, 2021. For tax year ending on or after December 31, 2019 and before December 31, 2020, use the 2019 form. Using the wrong form will delay the processing of your return. How do I register my business? If you are required to file Form IL-1041, you should register with IDOR. You may register • online with MyTax Illinois, our free online account management program for taxpayers; Page 2 of 28 • by completing Form REG-1, Illinois Business Registration Application, and mailing it to the address on the form; or • by visiting a regional office. Visit our website at tax.illinois.gov for more information. Registering with IDOR prior to filing your return ensures that your tax returns are accurately processed. Your identification numbers as an Illinois business taxpayer are your federal employer identification number (FEIN) and your Illinois account number. When should I file? Your Illinois filing due date is the same as your federal filing due date. In general, Form IL-1041 is due on or before the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the tax year. Automatic six-month extension — We grant you an automatic six-month extension of time to file your fiduciary tax return. The automatic extension of time to file is granted whether or not you request it. You are not required to file a form in order to obtain this automatic extension. If you expect tax to be due, you must pay any tentative tax due, by the original due date of the return, in order to avoid interest and penalty on tax not paid by that date. To pay any tax due by the original due date of your return: • visit tax.illinois.gov, for information about ACH credit, • pay using mytax.illinois.gov, or • mail Form IL-1041-V, Payment Voucher for Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax, using the address on the form. If an unpaid liability is disclosed when you file your return, then you may owe penalty and interest charges in addition to the tax. See the “What are the penalties and interest?” section below. An extension of time to file your Form IL-1041 is not an extension of time for payment of Illinois tax. Additional extensions beyond the automatic extension period — We will grant an extension of more than six months only if an extension is granted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) beyond the date of the Illinois automatic extension. Your additional Illinois extension will be for the length of time approved by the IRS. You must attach a copy of the approved federal extension to your Form IL-1041. When should I pay? Payment of tax — You must pay your Illinois Income and Replacement Tax and pass-through withholding reported on behalf of your members in full on or before the original due date of the return. Failure to pay the tax due on or before the original due date of the return may result in penalty and interest. This payment date applies even though an automatic extension for filing the return has been granted. All payments must be made using Form IL-1041-V, Payment Voucher for Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax. Estimated tax payments — For state purposes, trusts and estates are not required to make estimated payments, although they may be required to make federal estimated payments. IL-1041 Instructions (R-01/21) Extension Payments - If you expect tax to be due, you must pay any tentative tax due by the original due date of the return using Form IL-1041-V. See Appendix A for more information. Voluntary Prepayments - You may make voluntary prepayments of your own tax liability as well as make pass-through withholding prepayments on behalf of your beneficiaries using Form IL-1041-V. See Appendix B for more information. We encourage you to make your payments electronically using MyTax Illinois or Modernized E-File (MeF) systems, or you may use Form EFT-1, Authorization Agreement for Certain Electronic Payments, to set up an ACH credit or phone debit transaction. These options can be found on our website at tax.illinois.gov. If you make your payments using MyTax Illinois, MeF, or EFT, do not mail us your Form IL-1041-V. You must use one of our electronic payment options if the IDOR has notified you that you are required to make payments electronically. We will apply each payment to the earliest due date until that liability is paid, unless you provide specific instructions to apply it to another period. You may also be assessed a bad check penalty if your remittance is not honored by your financial institution. Who should sign the return? Your Form IL-1041 must be signed by the fiduciary of the trust or estate. If there are two or more joint fiduciaries, the signature of one will comply with the requirements of the IITA. The signature verifies by written declaration (and under penalties of perjury) that the signing fiduciary has personally examined the return and the return is true, correct, and complete. The fact that a fiduciary’s name is signed to a return is prima facie evidence that the fiduciary is authorized to sign the return on behalf of the trust or estate. Any person paid to prepare the return (other than a fiduciary of the trust or estate, or a regular, full-time employee of the taxpayer, such as a clerk, secretary, or bookkeeper) must provide a signature, date the return, enter the preparer tax identification number (PTIN) issued to them by the Internal Revenue Service, and provide their firm’s name, address, and phone number. If your return is not signed, any overpayment of tax is considered forfeited if, after notice and demand for signature, you fail to provide a signature within three years from the date your return was filed. What are the penalties and interest? Penalties — You will owe • a late-filing penalty if you do not file a processable return by the extended due date; • a late-payment penalty if you do not pay the tax you owe by the original due date of the return; • a bad check penalty if your remittance is not honored by your financial institution; • a cost of collection fee if you do not pay the amount you owe within 30 days of the date printed on your bill. Interest — Interest is calculated on tax from the day after the original due date of your return through the date you pay the tax. Page 3 of 28 We will bill you for penalties and interest. For more information about penalties and interest, see Publication 103, Penalties and Interest for Illinois Taxes, available at tax.illinois.gov. What if I am discontinuing my business? Terminated — If you are the fiduciary of a trust or estate that has terminated during any tax year, you are still required to file the tax return. Also, we will pursue the assessment and collection of taxes if • the trust or estate was liable for income and replacement tax for that or any previous tax period; or, • the beneficiaries had income allocable to Illinois and were liable for income and replacement tax for that or any previous tax period, due to a distribution from the trust or estate. Sales or transfers — If you are a fiduciary that, outside the usual course of business, sells or transfers the major part of any one or more of • the stock of goods which you are in the business of selling, • the furniture or fixtures of your business, • the machinery and equipment of your business, or • the real property of your business, you or the purchaser must complete and send us Form CBS-1, Notice of Sale, Purchase, or Transfer of Business Assets, no later than 10 days prior to the date the sale takes place. Send this form, along with copies of the sales contract and financing agreement, to: ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE BULK SALES UNIT PO BOX 19035 SPRINGFIELD IL 62794-9035 or [email protected] Request for prompt determination — You may make a request for prompt determination of liability, in accordance with IITA 35 ILCS 5/905(i), if you are an estate that has terminated. A completed tax return must be on file with us before you can submit a request for prompt determination. Do not submit your return and request at the same time. Mail your initial return to the address indicated on the form. You should allow 12 weeks for processing. If your request is properly made, the expiration of the statute of limitations (absent fraud) will not extend beyond 18 months from the date of your request. Mail your request and a copy of your previously submitted return to: ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE PO BOX 19044 SPRINGFIELD IL 62794-9044 The procedure described above does not apply to 11 U.S. Code Section 505 Determination of Tax Liability requests. What if I need to correct or change my return? Do not file another Form IL-1041 with “amended” figures to change your originally filed Form IL-1041. If you need to correct or change your return after it has been filed, you must file Form IL-1041-X, Amended Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax Return. Returns filed before the extended IL-1041 Instructions (R-01/21) due date of the return are treated as your original return for all purposes. For more information, see Form IL-1041-X instructions. You should file Form IL-1041-X only after you have filed a processable Illinois Income Tax return. You must file a separate Form IL-1041-X for each tax year you wish to change. State changes only — File Form IL-1041-X promptly if you discover an error on your Illinois return that does not relate to an error on your federal return but rather was caused by • a mistake in transferring information from your federal return to your Illinois return; • failing to report or misreporting to Illinois an item that has no effect on your federal return; or • a mistake in another state’s tax return that affects the computation of your Illinois tax liability. If you are claiming an overpayment, Form IL-1041-X must be filed within three years after the extended due date or the date the return was filed, or within one year after the tax giving rise to the overpayment was paid, whichever is latest. Federal changes only — File Form IL-1041-X if you have filed an amended federal return or if you have been notified by the IRS that they have made changes to your return. This includes any change in your federal income tax liability, any tax credit, or the computation of your federal taxable income as reported for federal income tax purposes, if the change affects any item entering into the computation of net income, net loss, or any credit for any year under the IITA. You must file Form IL-1041-X no later than 120 days after the federal changes have been agreed to or finally determined to avoid a late-payment penalty. If your federal change decreases the tax due to Illinois and you are entitled to a refund or credit carryforward, you must file Form IL-1041-X within two years plus 120 days of federal finalization. Attach a copy of federal finalization or proof of acceptance from the IRS along with a copy of your amended federal form, if applicable, to your Form IL-1041-X. Examples of federal finalization include a copy of one or more of the following items: • your federal refund check, • your audit report from the IRS, or • your federal transcript verifying your federal taxable income. What records must I keep? You must maintain books and records to substantiate any information reported on your Form IL-1041. Your books and records must be available for inspection by our authorized agents and employees. Do the IDOR and the IRS exchange income tax information? The IDOR and the IRS exchange income tax information for the purpose of verifying the accuracy of information reported on federal and Illinois tax returns. All amounts you report on Form IL-1041 are subject to verification and audit. Page 4 of 28 Should I round? You must round the dollar amounts on Form IL-1041 and accompanying schedules to whole-dollar amounts. To do this, you should drop any amount less than 50 cents and increase any amount of 50 cents or more to the next higher dollar. What if I have an Illinois net loss deduction (NLD)? An Illinois net loss deduction (NLD) can be used to reduce the base income allocable to Illinois only if the loss year return has been filed and to the extent the loss was not used to offset income from any other tax year. Corporations, excluding S corporations, that are members of a unitary group, should use the Unitary Illinois Net Loss Deduction Worksheet in Appendix E, to determine any NLD. S corporations and partnerships, including any that are members of a unitary group, trusts, and non-unitary corporations should use the Illinois Net Loss Deduction Worksheet in Appendix C to determine any NLD. To determine your “Illinois net loss” start with federal taxable income and apply all addition and subtraction modifications and all allocation and apportionment provisions. In order to have any available NLD applied to your return, you must claim the deduction on Step 4, Line 30. See specific instructions for Step 4, Line 30. If you have an Illinois net loss for this tax year, you must file Form IL-1041 reporting the loss in order to carry the loss forward to another year. If corrections have been made to the loss amount (e.g., federal audit or amended return), you must report the corrected amount when you file. Ensure you have filed returns (i.e., Form IL-1120, Form IL-1120-ST, Form IL-1041, or Form IL-1065) for all periods in which you were required to file an Illinois return. Unfiled returns may result in disallowed losses, processing delays, and further correspondence from IDOR. If you need more information about Illinois NLDs see the worksheets and instructions in Appendices C and D or the Illinois Income Tax Regulations, Sections 100.2050 and 100.2300 through 100.2330, available on our website at tax.illinois.gov. What are the limitations of the Illinois NLD? For tax years ending on or after December 31, 2003, Illinois net losses can no longer be carried back, and can only be carried forward for 12 years. When determining the years to which a loss can be carried forward, corporations, other than S corporations, do not count • tax years ending after December 31, 2010, and before December 31, 2012 (NLD suspension); • tax years ending on or after December 31, 2012 and before December 31, 2014 for which the deduction would exceed $100,000 (NLD limitation).You must count any years in which the deduction you took did not exceed $100,000. For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1999, and before December 31, 2003, all Illinois net losses must be carried back two years (unless an election to only carry forward is made) then forward 20 years. The election to carry a loss forward only was made by checking the appropriate box on the original or amended loss-year return, whichever IL-1041 Instructions (R-01/21) showed the loss first. Once the election was made to forgo the Illinois carryback provision, the election was irrevocable. Illinois net losses in tax years ending before December 31, 1999, are allowed as a carryback or carryforward deduction only in the manner allowed under IRC Section 172, including, for example, the 10-year carryback allowed to banks for bad debt losses. The following are the carryback and carryforward years generally allowed for Illinois net losses in tax years ending before December 31, 1999. Illinois net losses in tax years beginning • after August 5, 1997, and ending before December 31, 1999, must be carried back two years, then forward 20 years. • on or before August 5, 1997, must be carried back three years, then forward 15 years. For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1996, and before December 31, 2003, you may have made the election to forgo any of the previously mentioned Illinois NLD carryback periods by checking the appropriate box on your loss year return. This election must have been made by the extended due date of your return and once made was irrevocable for that tax year. In addition, the special carryover periods in IRC Section 172, as in effect for a particular tax year, would apply to losses incurred in that year. For example, a “specified liability loss” incurred in 1998 may be carried back 10 years under IRC Section 172(b)(1)(c). Also, no limitations under IRC Section 382 or the separate return limitation year provisions of the federal consolidated return regulations apply to any NLD carryover. What if I have a discharge of indebtedness? If you had discharge of indebtedness income for a taxable year ending on or after December 31, 2008, and all or a portion of this income was excluded from your federal gross income due to bankruptcy or insolvency, then you may be required to reduce either or both (i) the net operating loss incurred in the taxable year of the discharge, and (ii) any net operating loss carryovers to the taxable year of the discharge. If you were required to reduce a federal net operating loss in the year of the discharge, you may have been required to reduce any Illinois net loss you incurred for the same year. This reduction is made on the Illinois income tax return you filed for the loss year using the Loss Reduction Worksheet on Page 12 of these instructions. If you are a corporation (other than an S corporation) or trust and you were required to reduce or eliminate a federal net operating loss carryover because you had discharge of indebtedness income, you may be required to reduce or eliminate your Illinois net operating loss carryovers. This reduction is calculated on the Discharge of Indebtedness Worksheet in Appendix D of these instructions. Attach a copy of your federal Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness, to your return. For more information, see Illinois Income Tax Regulations, Section 100.2310(c). What is the standard exemption? The standard exemption is $1,000. If you have a change in your tax year end, and the result is a tax period of less than 12 months, the standard exemption is prorated based on Page 5 of 28 the number of days in the short tax year. However, if this is your first or final return, you are allowed to use the full-year standard exemption even if it is a short tax year. If you are a nonresident, you must use Schedule NR (1041) to compute your exemption allowance. If you need further information, see IITA, Section 401(b). For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2017, the standard exemption may not be claimed if the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income for the taxable year is $250,000 or more. See Specific Instructions for more information. What attachments do I need? When filing your return there are certain types of income items and subtraction modifications that require the attachment of Illinois or federal forms and schedules. Breakdowns, statements, and other documentation may also be required. Instructions for these attachments appear throughout the specific instructions for completing your return. All Illinois forms and schedules include an “IL Attachment No.” in the upper right corner of the form. Required attachments should be ordered numerically behind the tax return, as indicated by the IL Attachment No. Failure to attach forms and schedules in the proper order may result in processing delays. Required copies of documentation from your federal return or other sources should be attached behind the completed Illinois return. You must attach a copy of your U.S. Form 1041, Pages 1 and 2, to your Illinois return if you are required to file federally. Schedule D, Beneficiary Information, must be completed and attached to all Form IL-1041 filings. If you are required to attach any Schedule(s) K-1-T, Beneficiary’s Share of Income and Deductions, only attach Schedule(s) K-1-T you received which lists your name and FEIN in Step 2 of Schedule K-1-T. Do not attach copies of Schedule(s) K-1-T you issued and which lists your name and FEIN in Step 1 of Schedule K-1-T. When filing your Form IL-1041 include only forms and schedules required to support your return. Send correspondence separately to: ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE TAXPAYER CORRESPONDENCE PO BOX 19044 SPRINGFIELD IL 62794-9044 Definitions to help you complete your Form IL-1041. Resident means • an individual who is present in Illinois for other than a temporary or transitory purpose; • an individual who is absent from Illinois for a temporary or transitory purpose but who is domiciled in Illinois; • the estate of a decedent who at his or her death was domiciled in Illinois; • a trust created by a will of a decedent who at his or her death was domiciled in Illinois; or • an irrevocable trust, whose grantor was domiciled in Illinois at the time the trust became irrevocable. For purposes of this definition, a trust is irrevocable to the extent that the grantor is not treated as the owner of the IL-1041 Instructions (R-01/21) trust under IRC Sections 671 through 678. For a more detailed explanation of “domicile” and “resident,” see Form IL-1040, Illinois Individual Income Tax Return, General Information. Nonresident means a person who is not a resident of Illinois, as defined previously. In the following definitions, all references to “income” include losses. Illinois base income is your federal taxable income, plus any additions on Lines 2 through 10, less any subtractions on Line 25. See specific instructions for Steps 2 and 3. Business income means all income (other than compensation) that may be apportioned by formula among the states in which you are doing business without violating the Constitution of the United States. All income of a trust or estate is business income unless it is clearly attributable to only one state and is earned or received through activities totally unrelated to any business you are conducting in more than one state. Business income is net of all deductions attributable to that income. Nonbusiness income means all income other than business income or compensation. For more information about the different types of nonbusiness income, see the instructions for Illinois Schedule NB, Nonbusiness Income. A pass-through entity is any entity treated as a partnership, subchapter S corporation, or trust for federal income tax purposes. Pass-through entity income is the income that any partnership, subchapter S corporation, or trust passes through to its partners, shareholders, or beneficiaries. Pass-through withholding is the amount required to be reported and paid by the pass-through entity on behalf of its nonresident partners, shareholders, and beneficiaries • who have not submitted Form IL-1000-E, Certificate of Exemption for Pass-through Withholding, to the pass-through entity, and • who receive business and nonbusiness income from the pass-through entity. Pass-through withholding is • reported to your beneficiaries on the Schedule K-1-T you send to them, • reported to IDOR on your Form IL-1041 and Illinois Schedule D, and • paid with your return or voluntarily prepaid with Form IL-1041-V. If any of your beneficiaries are pass-through entities themselves, they are required to report and pay pass-through withholding on behalf of their own nonresident partners, shareholders, or beneficiaries on the income you passed through. Your beneficiaries may claim a credit on their Illinois Income Tax return for pass-through withholding you reported and paid on their behalf. Trusts can both make and receive pass-through withholding. Estates can receive pass-through withholding. • Pass-through withholding you owe on behalf of your members is a payment of pass-through withholding you make on behalf of your nonresident beneficiaries who Page 6 of 28 have not submitted Form IL-1000-E to you. This amount will be reported on Form IL-1041, Line 53. • Pass-through withholding reported to you is a credit for pass-through withholding you receive on Schedules K-1-P and K-1-T as a partner, shareholder, or beneficiary of a pass-through entity. This amount will be reported on Form IL-1041, Line 55c. If you are a nonresident and the pass-through withholding reported to you satisfies your Illinois Income Tax liability, you are not required to file an Illinois Income Tax return. If you had Illinois income from other sources and the pass-through withholding made on your behalf does not cover your liability, you must file a return to report the tax on all of your Illinois income and claim a credit for pass-through withholding made on your behalf. All residents and pass-through entities must file their own annual Illinois Income Tax return to claim a credit for any pass-through withholding reported to them. See Publication 129, Pass-through Entity Income, for more information. When is business income allocable to Illinois? If the trust or estate is a resident, all income received, regardless of source, is allocable to Illinois. If the trust or estate is a nonresident and business income is derived • wholly inside Illinois, the entire amount of business income is allocable to Illinois; • wholly outside of Illinois, none of the business income is allocable to Illinois; • inside and outside of Illinois, complete Illinois Schedule NR (Form IL-1041), Nonresident Computation of Fiduciary Income, Step 6. See the instructions for Illinois Schedule NR (Form IL-1041), Step 6. • from subchapter S corporations, partnerships, and other fiduciaries, the business income may be allocable to Illinois. See the Illinois Schedule(s) K-1-P, Partner’s or Shareholder’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, and Recapture, furnished by the subchapter S corporation or partnership or the Illinois Schedule(s) K-1-T furnished by the other fiduciary to determine what income is allocable to Illinois. When is nonbusiness income allocable to Illinois? If the trust or estate is a resident, all nonbusiness income is allocable to Illinois. If the trust or estate is a nonresident, items of income and deduction which constitute nonbusiness income are allocable to Illinois according to the following rules: • Interest and dividend income received by a nonresident trust or estate is not allocable to Illinois. • Net rents and royalties Real property — Rents and royalties from real property are allocable to Illinois if the property is located in Illinois. Tangible personal property — Rents and royalties from tangible personal property are allocable to Illinois to the extent the property is used in Illinois. The extent of use of tangible personal property in a state is determined by multiplying the rents and royalties derived from the IL-1041 Instructions (R-01/21) • • • • • property by a fraction, in which the numerator is the number of days the property is located in the state during the rental and royalty period in the tax year and the denominator is the total number of days during all rental or royalty periods in the tax year. Patent and copyright royalties are allocable to Illinois to the extent the patent or copyright is used in Illinois. A patent is used in Illinois to the extent that it is employed in production, fabrication, manufacturing, or other processing in Illinois or to the extent that a patented product is produced in Illinois. A copyright is used in Illinois to the extent that printing or other publication originates in Illinois. Gains and losses from sales or exchanges of real or tangible property are in Illinois if the property is located in Illinois at the time of the sale or exchange. Gains or losses from the sale or exchange of intangible personal property are not allocable to Illinois. Income from subchapter S corporations, partnerships and other fiduciaries paid to the trust or estate is allocable to Illinois as if the trust or estate received it directly. See the Illinois Schedule(s) K-1-P furnished by the subchapter S corporation or partnership or the Illinois Schedule(s) K-1-T furnished by the other fiduciary to determine what income is allocable to Illinois. Illinois State lottery winnings and proceeds from sales or other transfers of rights to lottery winnings received by a nonresident fiduciary are allocable to Illinois. Other unspecified items of income or deduction of a nonresident taxpayer are not allocable to Illinois. What does taxable in other states mean? Taxable in other states means you are subject to and actually pay “tax” in another state. “Tax” means net income tax, franchise tax measured by net income, or franchise tax for the privilege of doing business. You are considered taxable in another state if that state has jurisdiction to subject you to a net income tax, even though that state does not impose such a tax. This definition is for purposes of allocating nonbusiness income and apportioning business income inside or outside Illinois. What is the fiduciary’s share or beneficiary’s share of income? The fiduciary’s share of an item of income or deduction is that amount required to be taken into account in computing fiduciary taxable income for federal income tax purposes for the tax year and is not paid, credited, or required to be distributed to the beneficiaries of the trust or estate for that year. The fiduciary’s share of each of the addition and subtraction items required under the IITA is that part of each item that relates and is attributable to the fiduciary’s share of the items of income and deduction. The beneficiary’s share of each of the items is the amount that was properly paid, credited, or required to be distributed to the beneficiary for the tax year. The items of income and deduction and the additions and subtractions that are deemed to have been paid, credited, or distributed must be taken into account by the beneficiaries in proportion to their respective shares of the distributable net income. Page 7 of 28 When must I use Illinois Schedules K-1-T, K-1-T(3), and D? You must use Illinois Schedule K-1-T to supply each beneficiary with that individual’s or entity’s share of the amounts reported on your federal and Illinois tax returns. For Illinois Income Tax purposes, you must give a completed Illinois Schedule K-1-T and a copy of the Illinois Schedule K-1-T(2), Beneficiary’s Instructions, to each beneficiary. Do not file copies of Illinois Schedule K-1-T that you issued to your beneficiaries with your Form IL-1041. However, you must keep a copy of each Illinois Schedule K-1-T with your tax records. See Illinois Schedule K-1-T(1), Instructions for Trusts and Estates Completing Schedule K-1-T and Schedule K-1-T(3), for more information. Trusts only - You must use Illinois Schedule K-1-T(3), Pass-through Withholding Calculation for Nonresident Members, to calculate the required tax you must report and pay on behalf of your nonresident beneficiaries who receive business or nonbusiness income from you. You must complete the schedule if you have business or nonbusiness income distributable to Illinois nonresident beneficiaries who have not provided you with Form IL-1000-E, Certificate of Exemption for Pass-through Withholding. You are required to complete Schedule K-1-T(3) for each such beneficiary and keep a copy of the completed schedule in your files. Do not submit Schedule K-1-T(3) to IDOR unless we request it from you. The information entered on this schedule will assist you in completing Illinois Schedule D. See Schedule K-1-T(1) for more information. You must use Illinois Schedule D to supply us with a listing of your beneficiaries, certain items of income, and passthrough withholding you made on their behalf. You must complete all lines of Illinois Schedule D, as applicable, and file it with your Form IL-1041. What if the trust makes an accumulation or capital gain distribution? If the trust makes an accumulation distribution or a capital gain distribution (both as defined in IRC Section 665), the portion of the distribution included in the income of a nonresident or part-year resident beneficiary (under IRC Sections 668 and 669) is taxable to the extent that the trust income was allocable to Illinois before distribution. What if I participated in a reportable transaction? If you participated in a reportable transaction, including a “listed transaction,” during this tax year and were required to disclose that transaction to the IRS, you are also required to disclose that information to Illinois. You must send us two copies of the form used to disclose the transaction to the IRS. • Mail the first copy of the federal disclosure statement to: ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE PO BOX 19029 SPRINGFIELD IL 62794-9029 • Attach the second copy to your Illinois Income Tax return for the tax year that the IRS disclosure was required.

Form IL-1041 is an Illinois Corporate Income Tax form. Like the Federal Form 1040, states each provide a core tax return form on which most high-level income and tax calculations are performed. While some taxpayers with simple returns can complete their entire tax return on this single form, in most cases various other additional schedules and forms must be completed, depending on the taxpayer's individual situation, to create a complete income tax return package.

About the Corporate Income Tax

The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.

Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
