The Cans and Cant’s of Trust Decanting
A trustee’s power to pay over assets from one trust to another is a valuable technique. Whether relying on common law, EPTL 10-6.6(b), or another state statute specifically authorizing a transfer, the ability to pour over or “decant” assets from one trust to another permits a trustee to accomplish tax goals (for example, to change a grantor trust to a non-grantor trust or avoid state fiduciary income tax), to change provisions relating to trustees, to add or delete spendthrift provisions, and to achieve many other planning goals and objectives. This program will address the prerequisites for taking advantage of this powerful tool, provide drafting tips and practical advice about the potential uses of decanting and explain when decanting is unavailable. This program is aimed at lawyers with a basic understanding of the drafting and administration of trusts.
