Charitable Remainder Trust
Charitable Lead Trust
What to Consider
- A charitable lead trust is fully taxable; the trust pays both income and capital gains taxes, unlike the charitable reminder trust that is tax exempt. You can make a charitable income tax deduction if you are taxed on the trust income.
- A charitable lead trust reduces or cuts the gift tax cost of transferring wealth to children or grandchildren and gives appreciated property to heirs without further gift or estate tax liability. You can set up a charitable lead trust during your lifetime or by a provision in your will.
