Defining Irrevocable Trusts

The grantor of a trust has the ability to remove all rights to ownership of assets when transferring to an irrevocable trust. This trust is considered "irrevocable" since the only agents who can modify or terminate this instrument are the beneficiaries. For tax purposes, setting up an irrevocable trust is a smart move. Since you are surrendering all rights to ownership, you are able to alleviate yourself from a tax burden, including liabilities incurred due to an estate tax.

As with other trusts, an irrevocable trust can include a wide range of assets. This also allows beneficiaries and trustees to reduce the effects of probate, which can save the value of the trust's holdings. Common assets people include in a trust include businesses, cash, investment items, and life insurance policies.
