Donald was killed in an accident while he was on the job in 2010.

Donald was killed in an accident while he was on the job in 2010. His employer provided Donald with group term life insurance of $250,000 (twice his annual salary), which was payable to his widow, Darlene. Premiums on the policy totaling $2,700 have been included in Donald’s gross income under SS 79. Darlene received the $250,000 as a lump sum in 2010. Darlene also received Donald’s accrued bonus of $20,000. In addition, Donald had purchased a $100,000 life insurance policy (premiums totaled $70,000) that paid $200,000 in the event of accidental death. The proceeds were payable to Darlene, who elected to receive installment payments of $30,000b each year for a 10-year period. She received her first installment this year. What is Darlene’s gross income from the above in 2010?
