Prior to this year employees received group term life insurance up to $50,000. Harry is 52 years of age and has adjusted gross income of $78,000. Does Harry suffer any tax consequences because of this change in policy? An employee can exclude the cost of group term life insurance provided by an employer as long as the face value of the policy does not exceed $50,000.
