Situs of a Trust


The situs of a trust may impact the rules that govern the trust.

When you are drafting a trust you will sometimes find that your client is concerned about the trust situs. If your client asks about the trust situs, they may not care about the actual situs of the trust or even the governing law of the trust, what they may be concerned about is whether trust is sitused in a state for tax purposes. The tax situs of a trust could be very different from the location of a trust. This video reviews the impact of the situs of a trust and discusses factors that determine the situs of a trust.
