Best Answer

Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute in the nature of a workers' compensation act. The exemption also applies to your survivors. The exemption, however, does not apply to retirement plan benefits you receive based on your age, length of service, or prior contributions to the plan, even if you retired because of an occupational sickness or injury.

If part of your workers' compensation reduces your social security or equivalent railroad retirement benefits received, that part is considered social security (or equivalent railroad retirement) benefits and may be taxable. For a discussion of the taxability of these benefits, see Other Income under Miscellaneous Income, later.

Is the money you get from winning a law suit taxable?

This would depend on what the reason for the suit is and what payments are made for. If, for instance the suit was for unpaid wages, then the direct payments demanded by the court for wages would be taxable, as would interest allowed by the court. If a suit was for damages such as an injury to a person in an automobile accident then the award would not be taxable. Worker's Compensation payments are also an item that is not taxable.
