"Insurance and Taxes. No. All proceeds or withdrawals from any insurance policy are not taxable." This is not true. If you cancel a life insurance policy, the growth on the cash value IS TAXABLE. If you do not surrender your policy, the money is taken as a loan and therefore not taxable, but interest that has to be paid back to the insurance company grows.

If the policy was paid for with after-tax dollars, the proceeds would not be taxable. If the business took a tax deduction for the policy premiums as a business expense, a tax may be incurred on the death benefit.

When a person insured by a life insurance policy dies while the policy is "In Force", the death benefit is paid to the beneficiary. Life insurance proceeds are usually not subject to state and federal income taxation. But, if there is no beneficiary, the proceeds of a life insurance policy may be included in the estate of the deceased person. Then, it may be subject to state and inheritance taxes. Also, the proceeds may be subject to federal estate taxation. If you own all or part of the life insurance policy at the time of your death, the proceeds may be included in your gross estate for federal estate tax purposes. Also, federal gift taxes and state inheritance taxes may apply to life insurance policy proceeds under certain circumstances.
