Special type of charitable remainder trust (CRT) under which a designated beneficiary (cannot be a charitable beneficiary) receives an annual fixed income. The grantor of the trust is allowed an income tax deduction of the amount of the present value of the charity's remainder interest as of the date the asset (s) is contributed to the trust. If trust income proves to be inadequate to meet the required payments to the beneficiary, the selling-off of a portion of the trust's principal or capital gains earned by the trust may be used to make up the difference. Any excess amount of income generated by the trust above that required to pay the beneficiary is reinvested into the trust. Once this trust has been created, additional assets cannot be transferred into the trust
