​South Dakota Trust Services

Bankers Trust Benefit from South Dakota Trusts

In recent years, South Dakota Trusts have become increasingly popular because South Dakota imposes no state-level taxes of any kind on trusts. Savvy investors who establish a trust in South Dakota also benefit because the state has no law against perpetuities and allows Asset Protection Trusts.

BTC Trust Company of South Dakota was established in 1999 to accommodate clients who wish to create South Dakota Trusts and take advantage of this state's attractive laws. Our South Dakota affiliate is a full-service trust company which meets the full range of trust needs.
