In this time we need to make sure to get our information from government agency websites... this pandemic is survivable, we just need to be proactive and diligent. Health care directives, and Living trusts are a proactive thing you can do to give yourself and family a little comfort in knowing what to do in case of emergencies.

How much does a living trust cost?

Will a living trust help reduce the estate taxes? No. While a living trust may contain provisions that can postpone, reduce or even eliminate estate taxes, similar provisions could be placed in a will to accomplish the same tax planning. Will I have to file an income tax return for my living trust? No, not during your lifetime. The taxpayer identification number for accounts held in the trust is your Social Security number, and all income and deductions related to the trust’s assets are reportable on your individual income tax returns.

If I have a living trust, do I still need a will? Yes. Your will affects any assets that are titled in your name at your death and are not in your living trust or some other form of ownership with a right of survivorship. If you have a living trust, your will would typically contain a pour over provision. Such a provision simply states that all such assets should be transferred to the trustee of your living trust after your death. [ 79 more words ]

What are the disadvantages of a living trust? Because living trusts are not under direct court supervision, a trustee who does not act in your best interests may, in some cases, be able to take advantage of you. (In a probate, direct court supervision of an executor reduces this risk.) In addition, the cost of preparing a living trust could, in some cases, be higher than the cost of preparing a will.

How are my assets put into the living trust?

How are my assets put into the living trust? Once your trust has been signed, an important task remains. To avoid court-supervised conservatorship proceedings if you should become incapacitated, or the probate process at your death, your assets must be transferred to the trustee of your living trust. This is known as funding the trust. Deeds to your real estate must be prepared and recorded. [ 232 more words ]

Who should be the trustee of my living trust?

Who should be the trustee of my living trust? Many people serve as trustees of their own living trusts until they become incompetent or die. Others decide they need assistance simply because they are too busy or too inexperienced or do not want to manage their day-to-day financial affairs. Choosing the right trustee to act on your behalf is very important. [ 130 more words ]

How could a living trust be helpful if I become incapacitated?

How could a living trust be helpful if I become incapacitated? If you are the trustee of your own living trust and you become incapacitated, your chosen successor trustee would manage the trust’s assets for you. If your assets were not in a living trust, however, someone else would have to manage them. How this would be accomplished might depend on whether your assets were separate or community property, and whether you have a durable financial power of attorney. [ 352 more words ]

Should everyone have a living trust?

Should everyone have a living trust? No. Whether or not to create a trust is a personal decision. Young married couples without significant assets and without children, who intend to leave their assets to each other when the first one of them dies do not necessarily need a living trust. However, if the couple should die in a common accident, or shortly after each other, without a trust their estate(s) may be subject to a probate. [ 87 more words ]

What can a living trust do for me?

What can a living trust do for me? It can help ensure that your assets will be managed according to your wishes — even if you become unable to manage them yourself. In setting up your living trust, you may serve as its trustee initially or you may choose someone else to do so. You can name a trustee to take over the trust’s management for your benefit if you ever become unable or unwilling to manage it yourself. [ 46 more words ]

What is a living trust?

What is a living trust? It is a written legal document that partially substitutes for a will. With a living trust, your assets (your home, bank accounts and stocks, for example) are put into the trust, administered for your benefit during your lifetime, and then transferred to your beneficiaries when you die. Most people name themselves as the trustee in charge of managing their trust’s assets. [ 279 more words ]
