Can You Benefit from a Tax-Exempt Trust?

A tax-exempt trust is not for everyone, however, if your circumstances are such that one of the many options does work, the money you can pass to heirs will be substantially increased. Read below for several different ways a tax-exempt trust can be of benefit.
Any person(s) that has:

1) a highly appreciated (or depreciated) asset(s),

2) worth at least $200,000 that will be subject to capital gains tax if sold.

3) Usually the asset is real estate, a business, or stocks but could be almost any asset of value.

4) Selling the asset and reinvesting the income would bring greater annual income but the owners are hesitant because of the capital gains tax.
