This is actually a question for you legal counsel, although it certainly has tax implications.

First, you must seek an answer in your governing instrument. A well-drafted trust document will have addressed this question in advance.

Second, trust distributions generally are subject to the provisions of the Principal and Income Act of the state where the trust was formed.
