Revocable Trust Law and Legal Definition

Revocable trust is a trust that can be modified or revoked by the settler. In such trusts, the settlor reserves the right to terminate the trust and recover the trust property and any undistributed income. Revocable trusts are considered grantor trusts and therefore the income is taxed to the settlor and the assets in the trust at the time of settlors death are included in the settlors taxable estate.
