Trust Definition

A trust is normally created by a person who would like another person to protect their assets. It can also be used to distribute assets or funds to others.

Trust Expanded Definition

For tax purposes, a trust is considered to be a type of entity, much like a sole proprietor or corporation can be an entity. This entity is separate from the person who creates the trust and can distribute assets or income to beneficiaries.
