Are my workers' compensation benefits taxable?

If an employee is injured on the job and unable to work, he or she is entitled to incapacity or disability benefits from their employer's workers' compensation insurance company.  We are often asked if these workers' compensation disability benefits are taxable.  The answer is "No".  

Workers' compensation benefits, whether they are temporary total disabilty benefits or temporary partial disability benefits are not taxable at the state or federal level.
