I currently have a revocable trust. Here are the details:
It is a revocable living trust. My father is the settlor and I am the trustee and beneficiary.
We initailly set the trust up to put a property in it which is still mortgaged. My mother is the owner along with myself as the second owner as stated in the original deed before we made the trust.
We created a revocable truat and quit claimed the property to the trust about two years ago and now we want to reverse everything.
It is my understanding that I, the trustee will have to quit claim the property back to its original "owners" which was myself and my mother. We would have to get that document notorized and recorded at the county.
Then my father, the settlor of the trust, will create a revocation of trust form such as this which we will record at the county too:
Revocation of Revocable Living Trust
I, _____________ (“Grantor”), do hereby revoke the ______________(“A Revocable Living Trust”).
All assets remaining in the Trust shall be re-transferred to the Grantor.
______________________Acknowledged by Trustee
STATE OF __________________.COUNTY OF _________________.
This instrument was acknowledged before me on this __ day of ________, 20__, by Grantor, _____________, as his/her free act and deed.
___________________Notary PublicMy commission expires on:
Revocation of a Trust
Once that is done I assume everything is reversed. I would like to know if these are the proper steps, and if not, what would we have to do? Also, is that revocation of trust form sufficient? We will be recording that form at the county as well being that we actually recorded the trust as well so we would like everything to be recorded.
We are in florida and would like to know if we are on the right track here and also if we will be subject to any tax for quit claiming the property back. Here is the copy of the quit claim we will use:
When Recorded Return to:

The other question is that we never rented or "made" any money off the property so were we ever required to file a 1041 for taxes with the irs?
I appologize for the length but I wanted to provide as much information as possible.
