  • What is 709 for SLATs? Things to Know about SLATs

Overview of 709 for SLATs

SLATs stand for Spousal Lifetime Access Trusts which is a type of irrevocable trust. In this type of trust, one spouse will create the trust for the benefit of the other spouse and transfer their assets as a gift to them. Multiple types of assets like marketable securities, insurance plans, and income-generating businesses.

709 for SLATs is a specific form that is used by the grantor to file the tax return for that particular gift. The filing of this form will restrict the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) from taking action and challenging the worth of the assets placed in that particular irrevocable trust.

Benefits of SLATs

Overall, you will find multiple benefits of SLATs over other types of trusts and gift transfers. However, some of them are very prominent as compared to others. Let us share them with you:

     The property kept under the SLAT will be excluded from the tax. For both, the grantor and beneficiary spouse, the property will not be included in the tax estate.

     SLATs are normally named “Grantor Trusts” which impact the taxable estate of the grantor and reduce the overall taxation amount.

     This type of property transfer will not restrict the grantor spouse to not getting back to that property (might be a business). Under specific circumstances, like loss in business, the beneficiary spouse can give indirect access to the grantor spouse and let them manage their expenses from there.

Where You Can Create Your Trust?

Many people are confused about the filing of 709 for SLATs and think they can create trust and file it in their state only. It is completely wrong because you can create this trust in any of the 19 states of the country.

The reason for choosing a different state, as compared to the one you live in, is the tax relaxation. Some states of the country offer favorable tax conditions for SLATs. So, you can find the safe route for the creation of trust and transfer of your assets to your spouse to reduce the tax return.
