    My deceased family member who had life insurance put me on as a beneficiary and I was compensated. I recently received a notice in the mail from her life insurance company stating a taxable amount of 13,074.86. I am confused because this should be tax free money since taxes were being paid on the policy already. I would really appreciate your feedback .
    Thank you!

    I'm sure you've already asked the insurance company for an explanation, right?

    What were you told?

    There are several kinds of life insurance. Some can generate taxable income.
