Are Judgments Taxable?

August 9, 2023


Q. Thanks for getting my money. Should I report this as income on my tax return?

A: We are not tax experts. Our opinion is – if $25,000 was taken from you, and you sued and won – and later on, a judgment enforcer recovered $25,000 or less for you – there was no profit. In such a situation, no tax would be due. If the judgment enforcer recovered more money than the debtor caused you to lose – you might have to pay tax on the profit. This is just our opinion – please consult a tax expert.
