The Annual Account

Problem: Few trustees fulfill their duty to provide an Annual Account (California Probate Code §16061) to the trust’s beneficiaries. Complicating this problem is that few tax professionals provide this service for their clients who are trustees. 


Solution: Anodos helps trustees by producing the Annual Account which reduces the trustee's risk.
