Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the expert on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Here is a pithy summary from FT Adviser:
'Where a qualifying policy is allowed to mature, the proceeds are tax-free. However, if a qualifying policy is surrendered, varied or assigned less than ten years after the policy is taken out, any profit may be taxable depending on the level of tax you usually pay.'
Correct, surrender with impunity; no tax.
Thank you for your support.
