Grantor trust 101

Many trusts are grantor trusts. A grantor trust is a fancy tax term for a trust whose income taxes are paid by the grantor or settlor (person who sets the trust up). The IRS Code has grantor trust rules (Code Secs. 671-678). Grantor trusts can be used effectively for estate planning to use a long standing gap between estate taxes and income taxes to save clients and their families money.
