    Hi M.W.

    Yes, I'm a retired trucker. It was a hard business, and rewarding excluding
    the long hours and a host of BS dealing with shippers/customers.

    You seem to be a little loss concerning the benefits of Life Insurance.
    I'll try not boast, but my wife and I have been using several policies
    and have achieved exceptional results. I've outlined the major
    benefits in my original post.

    Allow me the opportunity to share some websites with you.
    These are wonderful websites with details on how
    Insurance can be used to finance your own loans.

    If you choose to stay ignorant on this subject, that's of course your prerogative.

    And that is a sound strategy to arb taxes and circumvent estate laws? Not in my world.

    Knowledge and understanding
    how life insurance can be structured as a
    Trust (revocable or irrevocable)
    with transfer rights for estate taxes.

    Of course it is. It’s not illegal.

    It's not illegal to lie to your family members. So, it's ok? Ever heard of ethics and moral values? What's the point of abusing loopholes? To advantage oneself at the expense of everyone else.

    You are correct, it is definitely NOT illegal,
    and far from it.

    In my world in my past business, I delt with
    multi-millionaire business owners who moved
    tons of freight on a daily basis. Quite frankly,
    I've never met a business owner that did not
    understand these concepts. I should know,
    since one of them is a close friend, and it
    was he who shared this information with
    me some 15 years ago.

    Stop it. Paying taxes is not some moral high ground. It’s the dumbest form of virtue signaling and you know it.

    I’m sure you take deductions and and credits where it’s legal. There’s no difference.

    and this is a straw man argument anyway.

    "Quite frankly,

    So you know one or some and conclude it must be all. That is a true trucker mindset.

    That's ridiculous twisting of the truth. Yes, paying taxes is not a moral high ground but abusing tax loopholes is a moral low ground because you know that it disadvantages everyone else at your own benefit in an unfair and unintended way. And quite frankly it's a huge business risk in doing so as well. Many tax loopholes were previously closed and charges applied retroactively.

    You are twisting the truth. Deductions are intended and offered to be applied, loopholes are not. You throw all in the same pot and stir and sell it as one and the same soup. It's not. Completely different issues and implications and intentions.

    Lets stop going down this route, you take a different moral stance on using loopholes than I do. Your choice, my choice in life.

    Whenever I see a person, who in the face
    of insurmountable evidence refuses
    to accept the FACT that they are wrong.

    Nor smart enough to use what he's wrong
    about to his or her advantage.

    It gives me the impression, their animosity
    towards beneficial knowledge says more
    about who they are, and not what they purport to be

    Anyone with a modicum of intelligence already
    knows a smart person uses knowledge to their
    benefit. A disdain towards such knowledge is
    usually an indication of a very unhappy life.

    Came off as laughable trying to deny my knowledge of Insurance,
    when it is clear he/she knows nothing about insurance if he
    does understand how insurance can be used to reduce Estate taxes.

    I doubt this person owns anything of measurable wealth above their laptop.

    You might seek professional counseling to learn
    why you have such a disgruntled attitude.
    Is it because you're tired of losing money?

    Here's a clue, be real, eventually people can see through a FRAUD.
