In a private annuity trust, an owner transfers property to an irrevocable trust in exchange for a promise to make prescribed payments to the owner for his or her lifetime. The trust then sells the property to a third party, the proceeds of which are invested to provide the payments promised to the owner. On death, the remainder of the trust estate typically passes to the heirs of the property owner. The trustee must be someone other than the property owner.
