Life Insurance Policy Locator finds $8.3M for beneficiaries
This week, as National Consumer Protection Week, the Colorado Division of Insurance, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies, reminds people about the Life Insurance Policy Locator.
Since it launched in November 2016, the Life Insurance Policy Locator has matched 515 Coloradans with lost or misplaced life insurance policies or annuities, leading to more than $8.3 million returned to those beneficiaries. Many who have lost a loved one have a vague recollection of a life insurance policy, or they find an old scrap of paper with faded writing from parents or grandparents.
“These lost policies represent wishes that have gone unfulfilled,” said Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway. “People don’t talk much about their life insurance, so lost policies are fairly common. I encourage anyone in this situation to use the locator to find the details and get it figured out.”
To learn more and access the locator visit colorado.gov/pacific/dora/life-insurance-policy-locator-0?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery.
IRS waives penalty for farmers, fishermen who file, pay taxes by April 15
The Internal Revenue Service will waive the estimated tax penalty for any qualifying farmers or fishermen who file their 2018 federal income tax return and pay any tax due by Monday, April 15.
The IRS is providing this relief because, due to certain rule changes, many farmers and fishermen may have difficulty accurately determining their tax liability by the March 1 deadline that usually applies to them. For tax year 2018, an individual who received at least two-thirds of his or her total gross income from farming or fishing during either 2017 or 2018 qualifies as a farmer or fisherman.
To be eligible for the waiver, qualifying taxpayers must attach Form 2210-F, available at irs.gov, to their 2018 income tax return. This form can be submitted either electronically or on paper. The taxpayer’s name and identifying number, usually a Social Security number, must be entered at the top of the form. The waiver box — Part I, Box A — should be checked. The rest of the form should be left blank.
Further details can be found in Notice 2019-17, posted on irs.gov.
