Generation-Skipping Transfer or Trust

A trust into which assets are deposited and invested, but for different beneficiaries. That is, the assets of the trust are held on behalf of the grantor's grandchildren; they are divided among them when the grantor's children all die. On the other hand, income from the investment of those assets is distributed among the grantor's children. Generation-skipping trusts allow the grantor's assets to bypass estate taxes that the children would have to pay if the assets were directly transferred.
