In two recent cases, taxpayers have successfully challenged state taxation of trust income on the basis that the taxing states had a minimal connection to the trust.
In The Kimberly Rice Kaestner 1992 Family Trust v.

The June survey was completed by 84 leading US tax executives and practitioners. Tax reform is defined as "legislation that substantially broadens the tax base or changes the tax rate for either corporate or individual taxpayers."
