Randall -

You asked "Is the lump sum taxed before/when it is annuitized?"

You owe tax on the amounts your receive, as you receive them. Thus, if you receive $100/month payments, you may opt to have a 10% withholding or not, but you will get a 1099 from from the insurer & it will report the total gain received as well as the amount of principle returned in total.

All set?
