When a policy pays out to the beneficiary the actual policy amount is not taxable but any interest paid is taxable. The interest is not deductible though unfortunately.

If you are talking about some other type of interest let me know but at this point I have to answer no, the interest paid by the insurance company is not deductible.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
