I have a loan on my whole life policy, the initial loan was 6400.00 many years ago. The loan principal is currently 12500.00 (6100.00 interest). If I surrender the policy (Cash value=18200.00 - 2300.00 premiums paid) I will have a 15900.00 tax liability. Is there a way I can recoup the interest paid off this total?

When forming a LLC Partnership and its time to pay your taxes. I understand that the taxes are a pass through, then on to the members. The members then pay their own taxes. My question is does each member pay 15.3% self employed tax. Or Is that 15.3% split when the members pay their own taxes. so they basically pay 7.5% each if there were only 2 members in the LLC...

I have a few old collection accounts on my credit report. I want to pay the accounts so at least they will be paid until the 7 years pass. The accounts are scheduled for removal in Jan 2018. If I pay the amount owed will it reset the 7 years it shows on my credit record?
