I am trustee in Idaho for my late mother's irrevocable trust in Arizona, TT Business guides me to file state in Idaho for the trust. What did that?

The only reference to Idaho is my mailing address as the Trustee, the trust and everything about my mothers over all estate is based in Arizona.  Still TT business guides me to file the trust's state tax portion to Idaho.  I believe it should be filed to Arizona.

I am trustee in Idaho for my late mother's irrevocable trust in Arizona, TT Business guides me to file state in Idaho for the trust. What did that?

What did that was the default programming of TurboTax, which presumes that the trust is a resident of the state where the trustee resides. Of course, you can always select another state in the State Taxes section since a free state is not included with the purchase of TurboTax Business.

Quite a few states consider the residence of trusts to be the state where the trust is administered and/or the trustee resides, or at least one of the factors in that determination. You might want to check Idaho and Arizona law because I believe both states consider the location of the trustee and administration of the trust as factors in determining residency.
