My Grandfather passed away, and I believe he had a $10k life insurance policy with me as the beneficiary (one for each of his grandchildren). I am currently in the highest federal tax bracket.I know nothing about this stuff, except that I believe there is no inheritance tax on this (because of the amount, if nothing else).Will I need to pay income tax on it? Are there ways I could handle the money (once I receive it, assuming I receive it) that will relieve the tax burden? I do NOT qualify for a traditional IRA, so that's out. I could put some of it in my ROTH, and some in DH's ROTH, but that's not my preference.Any information would be appreciated.TIA,Frydaze1
