Is an insurance policy loan taxable?

A loan from the cash value in a life insurance policy is not taxable as long as the policy is not a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC). A MEC is a policy where the premiums paid in the first 7 years are in excess of the amount needed to maintain the death benefit.
