    Good morning.

    my client owns real estate.She qualifies as a real estate professional. She is a grantor to a Grantor trust which also owns Real estate. All is commercial rental property.
    Does the grantor trust " taint" the income and make it subject to the NIIT , or is it truly a  disregarded entity.

    I would suspect it is disregarded.

    Any Comments appreciated.

    All income form a Grantor Trust (that is entirely a Grantor Trust) is reported at the Grantor level.  I would look for any exceptions that may apply such as a 162 Trade or Business or Real Estate Professional.


    Very truly yours,
