Is California SDI income taxable

This answer was rated:

I had a stroke this past year. I am back to working part time. I collected SDI for 8 months, about 30,000.00. I've been working for 25 years paying into SDI and never had a reason to collect. Is any of this income taxable?
Good eveningCustomerand welcome to Just Answer!

No, your CA SDI benefits are not taxable unless your SDI would be in place of Unemployment insurance which was not the case for you. Here is a link to CA's Web site regarding SDI benefits for confirmation and more informaiton (#21):
