Irrevocable Trust

Business / Taxes / Irrevocable Trust: An irrevocable trust is a legal agreement whose terms cannot be changed by the creator or grantor who establishes the trust without the consent of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. The trust document names a trustee who is responsible for managing the assets in the best interests of the beneficiary or beneficiaries and carrying out the wishes the creator has expressed. You typically use an irrevocable trust for the tax benefits it can provide by removing assets permanently from your estate. In addition, through the terms of the trust you can exert continuing control over the way your property is distributed to your beneficiaries. Trusts have the additional advantages of being more difficult to contest than a will and more private. If you establish an irrevocable trust while you’re still alive, it’s called a living or inter vivos trust. If you establish the trust in your will, so that it takes effect at the time of your death, it’s called a testamentary trust.
