If You Don’t Understand the New and Very Broad Life Insurance Transfer for Value Rules, You and Your Clients Could Be In Store for Some Serious Pain



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act amended Section 101 to deal with the transfer for value rule for reportable policy sales and added Section 6050Y to impose reporting requirements for reportable policy sales.  On October 25, the final treasury regulations were released, containing 120 pages of important content and rule changes.  The changes to the transfer for value rule are major and advisors need to understand these changes and how a simple change of ownership of a life insurance policy could fall under this new “reportable policy sale” definition and cause unneeded taxation of the death benefit.  These rules are not limited to the life settlement market, so all insurance producers, accountants, and attorneys need to understand the new rules because many transfers of policies that would not have previously been a transfer for value will now result in a transfer for value. 

This course will cover the following topics: 

·       Background on the transfer for value rule and what changes were made

·       What a reportable policy sale is and how it significantly changes the transfer for value rules going forward

·       What is a substantial family, business, or financial relationship, which is a key definition in determining if there has been a reportable policy sale

·       What are direct and indirect acquisitions of life insurance, such as acquiring an entity that owns life insurance policies

·       Application of the new rules to transfers of policies in estate planning cases

·       How the new rules impact transfers of policies in business planning cases

·       How the rules impact the life settlement market

·       Tax reporting requirements for reportable policy sales
