We can either keep paying on it or we can take the cash value (around $8,000). We have decided to cash it out instead of paying on a whole life policy with a loan against it (about which I have read here). The form to cash in the policy indicates that it is a taxable event. The policy was in her name, but they paid for it. My questions are:
1) Is it a taxable event for my wife to take the money out of the life insurance policy?
2) Do I need to be worried about back taxes owed on money she used for college?
