Qualified Personal Residence Trust

Also called a QPRT. In the United States, a trust to which the grantor transfers his/her personal residence. A QPRT is irrevocable. Therefore, the value of the residence is removed from the grantor's estate, which reduces his/her estate tax liability. The grantor may continue to live in the home for no charge for a certain number of years. The grantor, however, usually must pay a gift tax proportionate to the value of the home he/she owns free and clear.
