Charitable remainder trusts are usually set up for estate planning purposes. Ordinarily, a CRT funded with real estate will be structured so that there is no obligation to distribute any amount until the donated real estate has been sold. A gift of cash or marketable securities, in addition to the real estate, may also be advisable, so that the CRT has the liquidity it needs to meet its basic obligations ,i.e., paying the trustee and professional advisors such as the accountant who prepares the CRT’s tax returns.i guess you can contact boe of CA for more info indetal.
