How It Works

  1. Create trust agreement stating terms of the trust (usually for a term of years) and transfer cash or other property to trustee
  2. Trustee invests and manages trust assets and makes annual payments to Taylor
  3. Remainder transferred to your heirs



  • Annual gift to Taylor
  • Future gift to heirs at fraction of property's value for transfer-tax purposes
  • Professional management of assets during term of trust
  • No charitable income-tax deduction, but donor not taxed on annual income of the trust
