Updated Duration Allowed For Georgia Irrevocable Trusts

March 10, 2017

Georgia House Bill 122 to change the Rule Against Perpetuities for trusts.  Georgia  irrevocable trusts are currently limited to a maximum of 90 years.  The proposed change will assist families with legacy planning and protection of assets intended to endure for multi-generations by allowing Georgia domiciled trusts to exist for 360 years.  Under current la, Georgia residents wanting longer term trusts have to create trusts domiciled in other states.
