Thomas Biagoli, Real Estate Agent Keller Williams Jacksonville Realty

Trust in which rights to make any changes therein are surrendered permanently by the grantor. The grantor uses this type of trust to transfer assets and any potential depreciation out of his or her estate in order to avoid federal estate tax on the second estate distributions to heirs, as well as to avoid probate expenses. The primary disadvantage of this type of trust is that the grantor surrenders all control over the assets and the right to change the terms of the trust.
