Trust whereby asset management is provided until a child reaches the age of majority. Upon reaching majority, the child has full use and control over the assets. The grantor of the trust cannot receive any income from the assets held in the trust. All undistributed income is taxed at trust rates, which are low. The grantor, through this type of trust, is able to control the time at which the minor has access to the assets given to him or her by the grantor (who wishes to take advantage of the annual gift tax exclusion).
