Yes, but it is taxed differently then regular income, and like any income how much may be taxed depends on many other circumstances....other income, other deductions, other exemptions, etc. As this is a Federal benefit, the answer is the same for any State.

Refer to the Social Security worksheet in the 1040A IRS forms and Instructions book. Or go to and get much more information. Workmens Comp, which is a State program, varies from place to place, and how the premium was paid....but also on what you are collecting for. Generally, payments for loss of a limb for example are tax free. Payments for loss of earning (which would have been taxable) are taxable.
