ECONOMIC BENEFIT INFORMATION
split-dollar economic benefit reporting
The tools below are provided to assist clients and advisors in calculating Split-Dollar Economic Benefit Reporting.
Due to specific changes in the applicability of rates to certain types of split dollar arrangements (with which Lincoln is not party to and has no direct knowledge of), and rules that can currently tax certain cash values, Lincoln will only be providing certain policy information to the policyowner. This will include potentially applicable term rates.
The policyowner's tax advisor will have to decide which pieces of information are appropriate to which agreement and which calculations to use, based on IRS rules. Lincoln will not be able to provide a definitive answer as to the exact calculation that should be used. In order to assist clients in complying with these regulations, Lincoln has developed a worksheet that the client will be able to use with his or her tax advisor.
This page includes a downloadable copy of the worksheet, IRS and company rate charts, and a Frequently Asked Questions document.
