Yes PPLIease! A New Day for Private Placement Life Insurance Planning in Delaware

Delaware’s House and Senate have recently passed a bill that amends Section 702 of Title 18, which pertains to the State’s premium tax on life insurance policies issued in Delaware. The bill adds new Subsection 702(c)(3) to the Section, providing that the premium tax on private placement life insurance (“PPLI”) policies delivered in the State of Delaware shall be 2.0% on the first $100,000 of net premiums, and shall be 0.0% on net premiums exceeding $100,000.
