Best States for Trusts

IMAGE-Country-of-money-small-93852351

Most states impose a tax on trust income between 3% and 12%.  These seven states do not:

  • Alaska  
  • Florida   
  • Nevada    
  • South Dakota   
  • Texas   
  • Washington   
  • Wyoming

To avoid taxes on accumulated ordinary income and capital gains, locate a trust in one of these states.  In some states, this is as simple as naming a trustee in one of these seven states.  In other states, this may be impossible.
