Is workers compensation taxable in California?
Workers compensation is not classified as earned income and is not taxed in any state according to workers compensation insurance.com.



Unemployment benefits are subject to federal income tax not California income tax.

According to California Tax Service Center CA.GOV:

Unemployment insurance (UI) provides temporary payments to individuals who are unemployed through no fault of their own. It is an employer-paid tax.


Unemployment insurance benefits are taxable income for federal purposes but are not taxable by the State of California.


In order to determine taxable income each January, the EDD sends a Form 1099-G to each individual for the total unemployment insurance benefits paid during the prior year. If you don't receive your Form 1099-G by mid-February, you may call EDD at (800) 795-0193 to get another copy. For more information, see IRS Publication 525, Taxable and Nontaxable Income.
