The instructions are confusing to me. I am doing an estate income tax return and need help as\nto whether I can deduct something. The will says a contribution should be made to a certain charity\nbut it doesn't say it is to come from gross income. It is just to come from the assets when\ndistributions are made. The estate had no nontaxable income so I'm not sure what role that\nwould play. Can someone help?
