Taxation – Federal Income Taxation – Problems Created by the Complex Trust Provisions of the 1954 Code

This comment will not be expository of all of the trust provisions but rather will attempt to deal with some of the more important interpretative difficulties likely to be encountered in the new law involving the taxation of the income of those trusts which may accumulate income, distribute corpus, or pay or set aside amounts for charitable purposes. It will be assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic statutory pattern of the trust sections of the new code.
