Some commercial annuities make payments for a person's lifetime and also provide survivorship benefits or partial refunds upon death. Designating KQED to receive such benefits can avoid both income taxes and estate taxes.
How: Check with the issuer of your annuity. Use KQED's legal name "KQED Inc.," and Taxpayer ID No., 94-1241309, if needed.
