What Type of Trust Best Suits Your Beneficiary’s Needs?

As part of your estate planning, you may choose to set up a trust for your beneficiary that is based on a certain type of income. A charitable trust allows others to provide donations and is an ideal way to provide for entities to write off contributions on their taxes. A non-charitable trust does not provide for such a tax incentive. Consulting with the lawyer at Trump & Trump, L.C. will give you insight into the best type of trust that meets the need of the beneficiary.
