Form 1041 for a Complex Trust

Level 5

I am preparing a return for a Complex Trust which has one individual beneficiary.  I want to transfer all income (interest, dividends, and capital gains) from the Trust to the individual beneficiary via the K-1.  It seems that it is possible to do this and thereby take advantage of the income distribution deduction on the 1041.  Am I overlooking anything in arriving at this conclusion?  Any comments will be appreciated.  Thanks!

How much was distributed to the beneficiary in 2020, or at least, how much was required to be distributed to the beneficiary?

Level 15

Does the trust document and/or state law permit capital gains to be distributed?
