If I surrender this life insurance policy and take the $40,000, are there any tax consequences?

I have a flex life policy for $100,000 that has a cash value or surrender value of $40,000.

Yes, any appreciation above your premium contributions will probably be taxed. You should contact the life insurance company and ask them directly what the taxable income would be.
