Williams had at least two trusts, and it appears that the Domus Dulcis Domus Holding Trust was done, at least in part, to minimize estate taxes. Real estate holding trusts, when made irrevocably and established and used the right way, can often carve valuable real estate outside of someones taxable estate. With the $25 million or so in equity, this could add up to a substantial savings for Williams family. Even if this trust was not set up with estate taxes in mind, if nothing else it worked to safeguard privacy for Williams and his family. When used properly and notleaked to the media or revealed due to litigation, trusts allow celebrities and non-celebrities alike to avoid probate court and keep their affairs private. http://www.forbes.com/sites/trialandheirs/2014/08/12/whats-next-for-robin-williams-family-and-estate/
