The routine type of deductions are mostly self-explanatory (see screenshot).

 

However, funeral expenses are simply not deductible on Form 1041 and broker's fees incurred in the sale of a house would be deducted when you enter the transaction on Form 8949.

 

Frankly, even the least complex 1041 return can be challenging for anyone who is not familiar with accounting procedures, applicable tax law and regulations, and the forms and schedules involved, so professional guidance is recommended in most cases and tax preparation software is almost indispensable.
