Joshua Rubenstein, national head of the firm's Private Wealth practice, recently testified in a prominent tax case involving off-shore trusts. Joshua noted that it is legal for the beneficiaries of a trust to use and enjoy luxury goods purchased by the trust. He also indicated that it is appropriate for the trusts to pay for the maintenance and taxes of those goods. Joshua stated, "It's their money and their property and it’s there for them to use."
