Hello, It's a small estate, no estate tax so no 706. Brokerage account did not go through probate, but decedent got a 1098 for last year reporting $681 in qualified dividends from the period between date of death and the setup of beneficiaries new brokerage accounts. These dividends were distributed not by the estate but basically by the brokerage as they put the proceeds in the new accounts set up by the beneficiaries. Do these dividends have to be put on Schedule K1s and passed through to the beneficiaries' 1040s? And if so, can I allocate administrative expenses deduction to this dividend income on the 1041 to zero it out and not have to pass it through?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

If the 1098 (sic) is in the EIN of the estate/trust, they go on the 1041. The 1041 would be required because income is greater than $600. Deductions are allowed.
