A probate estate was opened for the deceased personal representative to file claim of wrongful death. The law suit was successful and a large some of money is to be awarded. The decedents gross estate at the time of death was only $900,000. of which all was in an revocable trust, owned by a single trustee. No Federal Estate Tax Return was filed because the estate fell below the minimum guidelines (5.12mill). The lawsuit claim is estimated to be 9mill. before taxes and fees. How should this be reported? Who is responsible for claiming this money and what taxes apply?
