Idaho Revocable Living Trust Form

Idaho Revocable Living Trust Form

Updated August 02, 2023

The Idaho revocable living trust is an entity created by an individual so they may continue to benefit from their property and other assets while avoiding the probate process when they die. A revocable trust can be altered or revoked at any point during the Grantor’s (creator of the trust) lifetime, but becomes irrevocable after death. Although an Idaho revocable living trust does not aid in saving State or Federal estate taxes, it will prevent the Grantor’s assets from being controlled by a conservator. The Trustee, or Successor Trustee, appointed by the Grantor will remain in charge of handling the Trust rather than a court-appointed agent. Upon the death of the Grantor, the contents of the living trust are distributed to the Beneficiaries by the Trustee. This process takes place out of probate court, which is beneficial as probate can be a lengthy and costly process in the State of Idaho.
