How Do Taxes Work For Irrevocable And Revocable Trusts?

Whenever money is involved, odds are high the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is also involved. One example involving estate planning is the use of trusts. Trusts are essentially legal tools that govern the distribution of certain funds. This piece will discuss how the IRS taxes two main types of trusts: revocable and irrevocable.

Two Important Things To Know About Irrevocable Trusts

An irrevocable trust is a legal tool that can help shelter funds from creditors. A wisely structured trust can help to better ensure an intended heir not only receives their inheritance but also gets an inheritance that is protected from attempts by creditors to claim ownership interest in the funds.

Trusts: What is the difference between revocable and irrevocable?

A trust is a legal tool that allows the creator to have greater control over his or her assets. Depending on the structure of the trust, the legal tool can result in tax benefits, shelter assets from creditors and even guide how money is used in the future.
