Abstract: IRC section 6012 requires that an annual income tax return be filed for estates and trusts.

The worksheets are used to figure various taxes and deductions. Form 1041-V allows the Internal Revenue Service to process the payment more accurately and efficiently. The IRS strongly encourages the use of Form 1041-V, but there is no penalty if it is not used.
