I am in a court battle with the trustee of my trust for breach and theft. Are the legal fees I am paying tax deductible? Thanks
They are not tax-deductible but if you win you can request a surcharge so that they are paid by the trustee. If you did not make a surcharge request in your petition you may want to amend it.
