Grantor: A grantor is a person "granting" or transferring assets to a trust. Some practitioners and state statutes use the word "settlor" or "trustor" or "maker" or "creator." At Hughes Estate Group, we use the word used by the Internal Revenue Service, the tax courts, and most state courts: "grantor."
