In the state of Wisconsin, I had worker's comp from an injury at work and I was not taxed on it. I would imagine it depends on the state.

Check out the IRS Publication 15A for the year workers compensation benefits have been received. It clearly states that worker's compensation is not taxable. It is not taxable in Michigan, either.
