to Q & a for answer...
i understand that he bought a paid-up annuity about 12 years ago. the dividends were reinvested in the fund. if i understand your answer, the orginal investment would come to me tax free but the accumilated interest would be taxable. this could also effect my social security taxes as well as my effective tax rate.
would this be taxed at ordinary income rates or cap gains?
