I surrendered my daughter's life insurance on 01/06/15.

Customer Question

I surrendered my daughter's life insurance on 01/06/15. Gross surrender value was 32,789.67. Minus my loan debt 24,417.94, so I received the cash 8,371.73. The total premium I had paid was 12,305.52. I assume 32,789.67 - 12,305.52 = 20,484.15 is
the taxable amount for this year income. My question is: am I correct? If not, please tell me the right answer. Thank you very much for your help. Sincerely, Suki ***
