Best Situs for DAPTs in 2021

A ranking of jurisdictions that offer the best asset protection and the UVTA.

Nineteen states (or 38% of all states) in the United States now have domestic asset protection trust (DAPT) statutes. Some commentators originally thought that DAPT statutes would be limited to smaller populated states, but with Ohio entering the DAPT arena, the DAPT roster gained a populous state that’s also a major banking center. Further, Tennessee, Indiana and Missouri all have DAPT statutes, and they’re the 16th through the 18th most populous states.1
