That Make You Look Great

RLT (Revocable Living Trust) +

RLT (Revocable Living Trust)

Created by client (called “Grantor,” “Settlor,” “Trustor,” “Trustmaker,” etc.). The client has full right to amend and revoke the trust or any provision thereunder during the client’s lifetime. A RLT, can provide detailed instruction and authority for a client’s family in the event of his/her disability. A RLT if funded, can also avoid the need for probate and provide for effective distribution of assets at death to heirs outright or in lifetime asset protection trusts. The client retains access to all income and all principal from the trust at any time.

All assets in a RLT remain available to the client’s creditors, predators and long-term care costs and are
considered “available” for purposes of Medicaid qualification and Veterans Benefits eligibility.

  • Client retains right to income and principal from the trust.

  • Client can provide extensive “directions” for use of assets and income in case of disability.
  • Client can pass assets to beneficiaries in asset protection trust with personalized instructions.

USES

  • Clients who want to avoid probate and get their assets to their beneficiaries effectively and timely.
  • Clients who wish to provide extensive instructions and authority in event of disability.
  • Clients who want to maintain full control and access to all assets at all times.
  • Clients who want to provide asset protection to their heirs after death or to protect against “spend thrift” or loss to disabled beneficiaries care costs.

BENEFITS

  • Keeps client affairs private (don’t have to share with children or public).
  • Retains ownership for full step-up in tax basis to asset values at death.
  • Permits assets to be distributed to beneficiaries in asset protection trust.

MIT™ (My Income Trust) / Partial MIT™ +

MIT™ (My Income Trust)

Created by client (called “Grantor,” “Settlor,” “Trustor,” “Trustmaker,” etc.). Client retains the right to all income from the trust, but gives up all right to direct access to the principal of the trust. The client may retain the right to use trust assets (ie. live in house) and maintains full control over the trust assets (allows grantor to purchase trust assets that grantor may use pursuant to trust terms.) Client’s assets are protected from the reach of creditors, predators or long-term care costs. This trust is utilized when client’s assets exceed the Medicaid qualifying amounts. In all, but Nebraska, assets retained in MITTM are not considered available resource for Medicaid qualification but transfers to it create an uncompensated transfer and a likely penalty period for transfers to it.

Partial MIT™

Same as MIT except client retains the right to only part of the income from the trust, because generally not needed by the client and wants to protect part of income from creditors, predators and long-term care costs.

Client does not retain the right to income or principal from the trust but retains full control over trust asset management and distribution.

All assets in FIT® are protected from creditors, predators or long-term care costs. All transfers to FIT® are considered uncompensated and create a likely penalty period for Medicaid eligibility.

TAP™ (Tax All-Purpose Trust) / CGT™ (Completed Gift Trust) +

TAP™ (Tax All-Purpose Trust)

Created by client (called “Grantor,” “Settlor,” “Trustor,” “Trustmaker,” etc.). This trust is a non-grantor trust created by client typically to minimize estate taxes. The client retains no rights to control, modify, amend or to benefit in any way from this trust, ever! Typically transfers to a TAP are completed gifts for estate and gift tax purposes and are not included in the taxable estate of client. Trust provides “Crummey Powers” to ensure transfers to it are not a taxable gift to the client (up to the maximum annual gift tax exclusion amount multiplied by the number of eligible beneficiaries.)

CGT™ (Completed Gift Trust)

Same as TAP Trust but does not contain “Crummey Powers.” Assumes all transfers to trust are completed gifts in which the annual gift tax exclusion does not apply and therefore may be subject to gift tax. Generally, not a concern if client’s total assets are less than the maximum federal gift and estate tax exemption amount (since no gift tax is actually paid unless [or until] lifetime gifts exceed estate tax allowable amounts.)

FEATURES

  • Non-Grantor Trust created by client (individual or joint)
  • Client (grantor) cannot retain any rights to control, change, modify or benefit from trust in any way, ever.
  • Requires a trustee other than client or someone “controlled” by client pursuant to IRC §672.
  • Non-Grantor trust which typically requires its own tax identification (separate tax-paying entity)
  • Spouse can be beneficiary (as long as not a co-grantor) and protected from spouse’s creditors, predators or long-term care costs (requires independent trustee with ascertainable standards.)
  • May opt to convert to Grantor Trust for income tax purposes only (avoids annual tax filings.)

USES

  • Typically used as an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT) to avoid life insurance proceeds from being included in client’s taxable estate.
  • Wealthier individuals (above the state or federal estate tax exempt amounts) to avoid inclusion of assets in taxable estate.
  • “Stand Alone” to use for any individual purpose (“grandchildren’s trust,” “stand alone IRA trust,” “camp trust,” etc.) for individuals with potential taxable estates (consider FIT® for similar goals if no taxable estate anticipated.)

COUNSELING ISSUES

  • Trust cannot be changed by client (grantor) although grantor may permit third-party (ie. trust protector) to
    change
  • No rights to grantor once completed and funded
  • Consider use if state gift/estate taxes less than federal
  • “3 year rule” – All [taxable] gifts made within 3 years of grantor’s death will be “brought back” into taxable estate if grantor (ie. if a life insurance policy is transferred in instead of being originally purchased by trust.)
  • Trustee management to utilize and benefit from “Crummey Powers” (TAPTM only).
  • Annual tax return filing requirement.
  • Standard vs Personalized Planning options (see separate summary)
  • Commitment (transaction or relationship)
