The Process Of Trust Administration
Establishing a trust can be a key element of any estate plan. In fact, a proper trust can help you avoid probate, minimize taxes and distribute your assets in private. However, drawing up the proper documents and funding the trust is only the first step. Trust administration must follow.
Trust administration is the process by which the trustee carries out the directives of the trust. These responsibilities may include filing tax returns, distributing money, making investment decisions, filing waivers, buying or selling property, or even running a business. With these job functions comes great duty and responsibility. Failure to perform these tasks adequately can create liability for damages to the beneficiaries and others.
