A Two-Trust Estate Plan, using a credit shelter trust along with one other trust, saves estate tax the way a credit shelter does, but also places the other assets that pass to your spouse under the marital deduction in a trust, rather than passing to your spouse outright. You may give your spouse a lifetime power to distribute trust property, or give your spouse power to distribute property only by will.
