Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT) (also known as a Crummy Trust)

An ILIT is an Irrevocable Trust that owns one or more life insurance policies. If this type of trust owns insurance policies on your life, the proceeds payable on your death generally should not be included in your estate for estate tax purposes. This type of trust is commonly used by business owners to provide liquid funds necessary to pay estate taxes.
