Assuming that the rate applicable for the discount of accrued interest under Table B is 6%, the value of the accumulated income will be well above 5% of the value of the trust, so that the Grantor will be treated as the owner of the trust and will be taxed on the income. As a general rule, according to Cry 678, a person other than the beneficiary of a trust (for example.

In these cases, a Grantor is responsible for paying taxes on the income generated by the Trust, but the fiduciary assets are not charged on the owner`s estate.
