Sharon transfers to Russ an insurance policy with a cash surrender value of $30,000 and a face value of $100,000 in exchange for real estate. Russ continues to pay the premiums on the policy until Sharon dies 7 years later. At that time, Russ has paid $14,000 in premiums, and he collects the $100,000 face value. How much of the proceeds is taxable to Russ? Why?

They’re *all* like that. Someone shoot me, plzkthx.

I share your pain. Fortunately, as of last Tuesday the 3rd I’m done with exams for a while (other than the waiting for the damn marks, which will probably take until late July).
