Question

Why isn’t Schedule B from Form 3520, Part III calculating?

Answer

You can only use Form 3520, Part III, Schedule B to calculate trust distributions if you mark Yes for the Screen 3520-2, Foreign Nongrantor Trust Beneficiary Statement received? and Use actual calculation of trust distributions? fields. These fields are in the Part III - Distributions to U.S. Person From Foreign Trust section of Screen 3520-2. You can use Schedule B only if the following are true.

When you use Schedule B, Schedule A is subsequently disabled. Schedule C is then required if either method results in an amount being treated as an accumulated distribution. For more information, see 1040-US: Interest charge calculation from Form 3520, Part III, Schedule C and http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i3520.pdf.
