220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0810 Trusts—Charitable Remainder. Such trusts, whether called charitable remainder annuity trusts, charitable remainder unitrusts, or charitable remainder net income trusts, involve a transfer of property to an irrevocable trust, with the income therefrom reserved to the trustor or other non-charitable beneficiary and with a charitable remainder in the property at the termination of the income interest. Accumulated but undistributed trust income is added to the trust principal and distributed to the charitable remainderman.
The transfer to the trust would not be a change in ownership if the trustor or the trustor's spouse is the present income beneficiary of the trust. The charitable remainderman interest, even in the undistributed income, is not a present one but is deferred until the trust terminates. C 8/30/1985.
