The taxation for the estate of the individual will be charged as a whole and the individual beneficiaries won’t have to undergo individual taxation. This is the benefit of creating testamentary trust will.

Like other wills it also requires allotment of a trustee who is generally in charge of distributing all the assets entitled in the trust.
