Let’s learn more about the Deferred Sales Trust and then answer the 5  questions: 

 

The Deferred Sales Trust is an installment sale. Installment Sales is, “a disposition of property for which at least one payment is to be received after the close of the taxable year of the disposition. Section 453(d) allows taxpayers to elect out of the installment method, and instead immediately recognize all gains from the sale as income.” -IRS CODE 453 

The Deferred Sales Trust is a made up name and will not be found on the tax code.
