Is a settlement payment taxable?

If you are successful and win your personal injury case, you might receive a specified amount of money from the defendant to address related damages. Many people are unsure about whether or not they are required to pay a portion of these financial awards in taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Typically, financial rewards from personal injury cases are not taxable unless part of the payment was to reimburse you for lost wages. Because income is taxable, this financial reward is also taxable.
