Good Evening. I am a licensed Florida attorney. I hope I can be of assistance with your issue. First, a trust created in another state is still valid in another state; however, the state in which the trust was created is the laws that will govern the trust.
Usually when one spouse dies, the trust becomes irrevocable. This means you cannot terminate the trust.
Second, you do not need to take the IRS tax identification number off the trust. This number is ***** by the IRS and must be used to file a tax return on behalf of the trust.
Ok so to recap...your trust is valid in Florida and you do not want to terminate the IRS tax identification number.
For the rest of the analysis I need a little more information. Are you trying to take the IRA out of the trust name and put it in your sole name?
