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

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.
