U.S. Supreme Court to Decide on Trust Investment Fees

Posted on: June 8th, 2007
On June 25 the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a case on whether the investment expenses of trusts are fully deductible or subject to a 2% floor. The Circuit Courts are in disagreement on this issue. The case is Michael J. Knight, Trustee of the William L. Rudkin Testamentary Trust v. Comm’r of Internal Revenue.
North Carolina is in the Fourth Circuit, which has held that the fees are subject to the 2% floor.  If the Supreme Court rules the other way, it will be a big benefit for beneficiaries of North Carolina trusts.
