  Workers' Compensation
Must a worker pay income tax on workers' compensation benefits?

Generally not. Workers' compensation benefits are not subject to either state or federal income tax.


Sometimes, however, when benefits have been delayed for a long period of time and an employer or insurance company pays a worker interest in addition to the workers' compensation benefits, those payments of interest may be subject to both state and federal income tax.
