My mother died in 2008. She placed both her personal residence and vacation home in a living trust. She had no other assets. My sister and I are the beneficiaries of the trust, and I am her personal representative. The vacation home has been a rental property and her residence will also be a rental property.
I will file her final personal tax return. Will the vacation home rental income & deductions end on her date of death? I am confused about whether to file a return in the name of the trust or an estate return? I obtained an ein for the estate, but if I instead need to file for the trust (now and in the future) do I get an EIN in the formal name of the trust (ex; Doe Living Trust)?
