What’s a Grantor Trust?

Webinar Recorded: May 04, 2017
Presented by Brian Albee, J.D.,
Duration: 47 minutes

In this webinar, we will define what it means for a trust to be a “grantor trust” and contrast it with other language used in trust planning, like “incomplete gift trust.”  Also, we’ll discuss the seemingly oxymoronic phrase “grantor trust as to principal,” and the simply incorrect phrase “grantor trust as to estate inclusion.”  We will briefly touch on how to cause or avoid grantor trust status, but we will not go into great detail.  The focus here is on meaning and terminology.

Topics discussed:

  • What is a grantor trust?
  • How does grantor trust language contrast with other language used in trust planning?
  • Identify terminology which confuses some when discussing a grantor trust, such as:
    • Grantor trust as to principal
    • Grantor trust as to estate inclusion
