Spouse goes to SNF. Resources left by Mom: house about $240K, $150K mutual funds, a mix of CD/IRA worth about $25KK. All heirs live in different states. A Trust was formed by parents about 10 years ago. Some assets are in process of distribution in 2015. The house will remain a rental so rental proceeds must be allocated between the 3 heirs. Both personal and estate income taxes were filed for Mom in 2014. We may need to do a 2015 tax return for the trust. The heir who's spouse may go to the SNF is also executor of the estate. We are all concerned Medicaid will have loopholes that stretch beyond the immediate resources of the affected couple. There was no time to "plan" as one died and the other became too injured within a few months and may not be able to return home, triggering the Medicaid process.
