TREASURY DEPARTMENT,
OFFICE OF COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE,

Washington, D. C. To Collectors of Internal Revenue and Others Concerned:

Article 27 of Regulations 70 (1929 edition), approved March 23, 1929, as amended by T. D. 4296, approved August 6, 1930, is further amended to read as follows:

ART. 27. Insurance receivable by other beneficiaries.-All insurance taken out by the decedent upon his own life, as defined in article 25, in excess of $40,000 receivable by beneficiaries other than the estate, regardless of when taken out, must be included in the gross estate where the decedent during his life retained legal incidents of ownership in the policies of insurance, as, for example, a power to change the beneficiary, to surrender or cancel the policies, to assign them, to revoke an assignment of them, to pledge them for loans, or to dispose otherwise of them and their proceeds for his own benefit, etc.

The estate is entitled to only one exemption of $40,000 upon insurance receivable by beneficiaries other than the estate. For example, if the decedent left life insurance payable to three such beneficiaries in amounts of $10,000, $40,000, and $50,000 (total $100,000), the full amount should be listed on the return and therefrom substracted the $40,000 exemption as provided in Schedule C of Form 706. The word “beneficiaries," as used in reference to the $40,000 exemption, means persons entitled to the actual enjoyment of the insurance money.
