Generation-skipping transfer or trust

(redirected from Generation-Skipping Transfers)

Generation-skipping transfer or trust

A trust in which a principal amount is placed in a trust on the death of person A and is transferred to A's grandchildren when A's children die. The income from the trust goes to the children of person A while they survive.

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.
