Hi! It’s Lou Brown. I’ve been asked, how are Irrevocable Trusts taxed? Well, that’s an interesting question because it’s an Irrevocable Trust. What an Irrevocable Trust is, is a Complex Trust. What a Complex Trust is, is under the IRS guidelines. It has to file its own tax returns. So instead of a 1040, which is what an individual files, it files a 1041. It looks strangely similar to a 1040, except that it’s all of the income relative to that ownership. That Irrevocable Trust has. So there’s an opportunity for everyone to be able to take advantage of that wonderful thing called an Irrevocable Trust.

Now there’s a trust that I specialize in. That’s not only the Land Trust and the Personal Property Trust, which is let’s just say that’s the low cost or low entry, easy entry into the trust world. There’s a more expensive version that does a lot different things than the Land Trust and the Personal Property Trust. I call it the Elite Trust.

The Elite Trust is what you might imagine that the high, the upper echelon, the elite would use. But it’s interesting that we can use them too. The average person can use them. And the way I look at it is if you’re paying $16,000 or more in taxes per year, this is definitely something you want to look into. There’s so much benefit to using this trust.
