Because total current distributions of $70,000 are less than DNI, each beneficiary is required to report the amount of the distribution representing taxable DNI in his or her gross income. Therefore, E must report $60,000 of taxable DNI and G must report $10,000 of taxable DNI. The trust's deduction for distribution to beneficiaries is $70,000. (See Example 15, p. 2517.) The required firsttier distribution to E is $42,500, 50 percent of the trust accounting income of $85,000. The additional $37,500 distributed to E and the $40,000 distributed to G are discretionary secondtier distributions. The first $42,500 of DNI is allocated to the firsttier distribution. The remaining $42,500 of DNI is allocated proportionately to the secondtier distributions as follows: $37,500 E's secondtier distribution $42,500 $20,565 $77,500 total secondtier distributions $40,500 G's secondtier distribution $42,500 $21,935 $77,500 total secondtier distributions Therefore, E must report taxable DNI of $63,065 ($42,500 $20,565), and G must report taxable DNI of $21,935.
