Final Regs Released 10/25: Major Changes to Transfer for Value Rule! - TD 9879
2017 tax reform attacked sales on the life insurance settlement market. Such sales and similar transactions are “reportable policy sales.” Generally, when a policy has been transferred in such a sale, its death benefits will be subjected to income tax. When issuing guidance on reportable policy sales, the Treasury and the IRS decided to overhaul the regulations governing the transfer for value rule. Thus, these regulations are the most important guidance on the income taxation of life insurance since the split-dollar regulations were issued.
If you'd like to learn more about this important topic, then consider joining Steve Gorin in his exclusive LISI Webinar where he will cover the final transfer for value regulations. Here's just a few of the things Steve will cover in his content-filled, 90-minute webinar:
· When a policy transfer, which is not a reportable policy sale, will subject to income tax part or all of the death benefit.
· When a transfer is a reportable policy sale, including a detailed look at which transferees are targeted by these rules.
· Whether a transfer for value can be cleansed.
· Although buy-sell agreements for an operating business generally will not trigger the transfer for value rules, when life insurance relating to such agreements may become tainted for other reasons so that death benefits become income taxable.
· How to try to minimize income tax risks in using life insurance to fund a buy-sell agreement.
