Structured Settlement Payment Rights

Article 2.3 Transfers of Structured Settlement Payment Rights


Tax Liability to Whom?  Stepping into the Shoes of the Third Party Beneficiary


California Insurance Code says if your the person “stepping into the shoes of the third party beneficiary” (assignee),  you share the tax liability, if any, with the transfer company and you both are liable to the structured settlement obligor, and to the annuity issuer, if the transfer does not comply with California Insurance Code 10134-10139.5 OR if the transfer company and the assignee individually or both are noncompliant.


10139.3(d) states, “The transferee and any assignee shall be liable to the structured settlement obligor and the annuity issuer for any and all taxes incurred as a consequence of the transfer or as a consequence of any failure of the transferee or assignee to comply with this article or the terms of the structured settlement agreement.”
