Q: Do I have to pay federal or state income taxes on my Pennsylvania Workers' Comp benefits?
No. Workers' Compensation benefits are not taxable by either the federal or state government. While you are not getting your full salary through workers' compensation, you don't have to pay taxes on what you do receive weekly. Additionally, if you receive a lump sum settlement from the workers' compensation insurance carrier, you do not have to pay taxes on that lump sum either.
