I have a VUL with cash value I've decided I no longer need the life insurance associated with this policy. Is there a way to get access to the cash value without owing taxes? If no, how will it be taxed and how to determine how much gain/tax? I paid maybe $20k into this policy many years ago. Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA
