Which year to put K-1 income on my personal return?

    I just received a Schedule K-1 form 1041 from my father's
    estate. It is for fiscal year 4/01/2002 to 3/31/2003. The
    form they used says 2002 in large print in the upper right
    hand corner. My question is whether this should be reported
    as 2002 income (thus requiring an amended return, late
    payment penalty etc) or 2003 income. I tried to find this
    in Pub 17 and just couldn't locate it anywhere.

    This must be a fairly common situation. What tax year am I
    supposed to report it in as a calendar year tax payer?
    Thanks in advance!

    Fiscal year K-1s flow through to the tax return based on the
    year-END date. So, in your case, if the 1041's fiscal year
    ended in 2003 you would report the income shown on the 2002
    1041 K-1 on your 2003 tax return.

    Since the fiscal year ended in 2003, include on your 2003
    return.

    2003 1040. You are "deemed" to receive the income in the final
    month of the estate's fiscal year (3/2003) even if you actually
    received the distribution in April 2002.
