You’ve been awarded your EEOICPA benefits, so now what? We are often asked whether EEOICPA benefits are taxable as income. Although our experience is that these benefits are not taxable, we advise all of our clients to check with an accountant regarding the proper treatment of his or her individual circumstances.
But generally, our experience is that claimants find that these benefits are not taxable as income. So while we do not want claimants to rely on this post, we do expect that a consultation with a CPA will often result in a determination that the benefits are not taxable.
