We all know something about Estate Planning Trusts, and many have heard about AB Trusts. For that matter, many people have heard about AB, ABC, Charitable, CRUT, CLT, Revocable, Irrevocable, living, family, asset protection, QDOT, QTIP, IRA, and just about every "type" of trust you can think of. A lot of the names assigned to trusts are just that, names. Other names are acronyms while others are just letters representing a trust's function. In this seminar, we will explore what is meant by the "AB" trust and how they are still used today, but for different reasons. We will start with the basics of living trusts and move quickly into specialty trusts like the AB and ABC trusts. All trusts deal with various tax situations, and some are taxed currently while others are taxed after they become irrevocable. We will discuss some of tax consequences of estate planning trusts.
