Tax receipt name. Signor on Trust account

  • 1.  Tax receipt name. Signor on Trust account

    Posted 17 days ago
    Hello, 

    A married couple both give to our institution. They asked to have the acknowledgments and tax receipts be in the name of their  Family Trust account (which they are both signers on). Would we be breaking any IRS guidelines, industry best practices, would this be an audit finding if we if we issue the tax receipts in the name of the Family Trust account? 

    Thank you,
    Ghaith Saggaf

    I would only do this if that is the name that is printed on the check.  Otherwise, you have no proof the funds came out of a separate trust fund.
