Boli Split Dollar Agreement
Despite public acceptance, the lack of legal and judicial support for split-dollar deals has always allowed the IRS to change its approach to taxing split-dollar deals by issuing new rulings. In recent years, the IRS has indicated that it is reviewing the tax treatment of split-dollar agreements and, in particular, the type of split-dollar agreements called “dollar-shares.” In stock dollars, the employer is only reimbursed for premiums paid on receipts or cash values. Ultimately, the cash surrender value of the policy exceeds the employer`s right to reimbursement and this additional value in the policy is called “Policy Equity.” The IRS was not satisfied that police capital escaped income tax because the IRS viewed police capital as a benefit to an employee. The IRS, however, had some difficulty in developing a legal theory that would justify the imposition of this capital. A “split-dollar” agreement is a plan in which the premium, present value and death benefit of a life insurance policy are divided between two parties. A split-dollar deal can help plan cash for remittances to minimize taxes on income, estates, and gifts.

(4) Unpaid interest. An untavided interest in a life insurance policy consists of an identical fraction or percentage of any right, advantage and commitment to the contract. In the case of an agreement that purports to create unshared interests, in which the rights, benefits or obligations are distributed in one way or another among the holders of those interests, the agreement is treated as a split-dollar life insurance contract. (5) Ownerless payments that are not dollar loans. Where a non-holder of a life insurance policy makes premium payments (direct or indirect) under a split-dollar life insurance contract and the payments are neither split loans nor economic benefits referred to in paragraph (d) of this Section, the rules in paragraphs (d) to (g) of this Section shall not apply to such payments. Instead, premiums are subject to the general principles of income tax, labor tax, labor tax, and gift tax. See z.B. para. 1.61-2 (d) (2) (ii) (A).
