Review the Spousal Unity Rule and what it means.
The Spousal Limited Access Trust, by definition, will be a grantor trust because that's what §677 tells us - the power of a non?adverse person to distribute to or accumulate income for the grantor or the grantor’s spouse. Unless there is an adverse trustee, every SLAT will be a grantor trust and income tax treatment will apply accordingly. This video reviews income tax and the Spousal Unity Rule and exceptions to that rule and discusses planning for grantor trust status after the repeal of §682.
