The Advantages Of Setting Up An Irrevocable Trust
Without setting up a trust, your estate may face diminishment due to taxes and expenses. This is particularly true in states like New York and New Jersey. On the other hand, the setting up of a trust can shield assets from taxation in many cases. An irrevocable trust, in particular, has several advantages. These include:
- An irrevocable trust has tax benefits that a revocable trust may not have.
- An irrevocable trust provides flexibility in managing the trust assets for those who set it up.
- An irrevocable trust is safe from legal judgments.
- Such a trust is out of the reach of creditors.
Despite such advantages, it is important to create an irrevocable trust with great care. Only the beneficiary of the trust can provide permission to modify or amend the trust once created. Also, transferring assets to an irrevocable trust mean that the granter removes their rights to ownership of those assets.
