In 2008, the U.S. economy, and in fact, the world economy, was on the edge of a precipice.

February 3, 2015
Michael D'Addio, Tax & Business Services Principal, Quoted in Bloomberg BNA 2015 State Tax Outlook Special Report Article, "Changes in 2015 for Trusts and Estates."
When a trust is a resident trust under a state’s law, the state may tax the trust’s entire income.
