What would you like to do?
You recently received proceeds from an business insurance damage claim Are these proceeds taxable?
To get to the route of what your asking: The amount of the LOSS that is deductible is the unrecovered loss. Hence if you have claimed the entire loss as a deduction the amount of insurance you get is income - because essentially, you overdeducted the loss. If you have made no loss deduction claim, then u=insurance is NOT taxable as it is onlyr returning you to the position you were in before the loss.

Personal Injury proceeds are NOT taxable . No. Personal injury proceeds are considered compensation of injuries and losses, it is not a "gain" or "windfall" under the tax c…odes.. Actually, whether personal injury damage awards are taxable depends on what the award is for. If it is to compensate for personal physical injuries or sickness, then it's not taxable (IRC Section 104(a)(2)). Emotional injury that is the result of of physical injury may not be taxable; however emotional injury that is the result of nonphysical injury (for instance, defamation or trespass) is generally taxable. Likewise, lost wages that are the result of physical injury may not be taxable. (See IRS Guidance: Lawsuit Awards and Settlements and Rev. Ruling 85-97.)
Only if you made a profit; i.e., you received more than you paid for it. Then you would pay tax on the gain.
The answer to the question of whether or not beneficiaries have to pay taxes on the money received from life insurance policies is: no they will not have to.
Depends on what the recovery or award was for. General guideliens are if it stated as for replacing property you lost, putting you back where you were (say damamges… to your car), it is NOT taxable (presuming you have not taken the amount of that loss as a casulty deduction previously). If it replaces lost income, from work or say rental property (which would have been taxable if you had received it normally), or is punitive in nature, it's taxable. (Although some of the costs of recovery may be deductible).
That is the correct spelling of "proceed" (go on, go forth).

I have written many policies where the beneficiary is listed as the "Estate of Insured". This is a common method of insurance planning but the client needs to have a will in o…rder to direct where the funds are to go. Also "Trusts" are often funded with life insurance proceeds as methods of estate planning. An insurer may also pay proceeds to the estate of an insured if the named beneficiary dies before the insured and the insured does not name a secondary ("contingent") beneficiary. One of the big problems with proceeds being paid to the insured's estate is that, depending upon the amount of the insurance proceeds when added to other estate assets, is that the total may trigger an estate tax liability when one would not otherwise exist.
The IRS states that only settlements due to physical or emotional injury are non taxable, for instance if you received a settlement for mesothelioma. States however may tax se…ttlements as ordinary income.
no. you are being reimbursed for your loss.
There are several different ways the word "proceeds" can be used. Proceeds are the value of land, goods or investments when converted into money or something else …of value. Proceeds indicates a change in form of an asset. Proceeds can be the amount of money received from a sale. A more interesting example is provided in Black's Law Dictionary: If a farmer borrows money from a bank to plant wheat, giving the bank a security interest in the harvest, the harvested wheat is considered collateral. Alternatively, if the farmer exchanges some of the harvested wheat for a tractor, the tractor becomes the proceeds of the wheat.

No. Life insurance benefits are not eligable for taxation unless the insured passed away without assigning a beneficiary. In this situation the benefits are paid in…to the deceased's estate and are subject to any back taxes or child support owed by the deceased, or the would be inheritor. Cash value is not the same as an insurance benefit and may be taxable in some situations. Group (employment) insurance has no cash value.
No, (or a personal one)...but you can't also deduct the casualty loss - up to the amount of the payment...so if they paid you "in full"....thats it.
The foreclosing mortgagee can and usually does bid at the foreclosure sale. If the foreclosing mortgagee is the high bidder, it essentially pays itself up to the amount of… its debt by canceling the debt to the extent of its bid. The foreclosing mortgagee only has to come up with cash if it bids more than the amount of its debt.
