Heed Advice Regarding Living Trust
May 6, 2000
By: Robert J. Bruss syndicated columnist who is also a lawyer.
Q. I own four apartment buildings free and clear. They provide more than enough net income for me. But, at age 74, I am thinking of slowing down a bit. "Managing the managers", as you call it, is getting to be a pain.
My wife passed away about four years ago from cancer, and our only daughter died about 15 years ago in an auto accident. I have no close relatives to whom I wish to leave my estate.
Since I am in excellent health for my age, I would like the freedom to travel. My will provides that when I die, my assets will go to the university that I graduated from a zillion years ago.
However, a speaker at the Rotary Club I attend mentioned a "charitable remainder trust" could provide me with retirement income for the rest of my life and I wouldn't be tied down by my apartment buildings. How would this work? - Robert G.
A. A charitable remainder trust sounds ideal for your situation.
Your university will handle the legal details, agreeing to pay you a lifetime income based on your age and the value of your apartment buildings and other assets conveyed to the university. Of course, the university will sell the apartment buildings since it doesn't want to be in the property management business. The university will invest the proceeds and pay you the agreed income for your lifetime.
There are many advantages for both parties. The university now receives whatever assets you wish to include in the charitable remainder trust, and you have the satisfaction of making a substantial gift to your alma mater.
Of course, there are no capital gains or estate taxes. A charitable remainder trust is a win-win for everyone, except Uncle Sam.
