Just about every course i have attended suggested that it was best to set up trusts when purchasing properties. No one ever mentioned the costs of land tax in trusts is a killer!!!! For eg: I have 1 identity( Company ) that is holding properties valued at $819,000. Landtax if it was a company would be $1165. As a Trust the land tax is a whopping $5160.00. That is $3464 more because it is a trust. What benefit is it to be in a trust to have to pay over $3000 a year more for Landtax. Is there anyway to move the properties from a trust?
