Qualified Personal Residence Trust (QPRT)

A qualified personal residence trust (QPRT) offers an excellent opportunity for homeowners with taxable estates to minimize federal gift tax and avoid federal estate tax.

What is a QPRT?

A QPRT (pronounced "Q-Pert," and sometimes referred to as a house GRIT) lets you give away your house, but still keep possession for a while. More specifically, a QPRT is an irrevocable trust into which you transfer your home while retaining the right to live there rent free for a specified number (term) of years. At the end of the term of years, the property passes outright to your children or whomever you've named as the remainder beneficiaries.
