Can I deduct legal fees for setting up a trust

    Yes you can.  TurboTax answer doesn't give a complete and therefore accurate answer.  A large portion of a trust is tangential to dealing with tax issues so as to minimize the impact of IRS thuggery.  Talk to your attorney for further info.  You won't be able to deduct the entire cost of the trust but the percentage which deals with tax issues which might involve around 30 some percent.
