    When life insurance is left to a beneficiary, the death benefit is the property of the beneficiary. The IRS cannot take the life insurance proceeds unless the beneficiary was a cosigner for whatever the IRS is seeking payment. If the beneficiary of the policy is the Insured's estate, then the life insurance money is available to the IRS.
