The pourover will transfers assets to the trust to ensure that these assets will be subject to the distribution plan in the trust and will also receive the benefit of trust’s tax reduction provisions. The pourover will might include other provisions, such as tax allocation clauses. It also revokes prior wills.
If the probate assets add to up to more than $150,000, a probate is required. If the amount does not exceed $150,000, the assets can be transferred to the trust by using declarations as authorized by California Probate Code Section 13100.
Pourover wills also distributes tangible personal property, such as furniture, jewelry, clothing, etc., to the testator’s beneficiaries. It nominates executors and guardians for the testator’s minor children.
