Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. No, this is not taxable income because it does not represent an increase in your net worth as a result of something you did. Rather, it is simply payment for a loss to put you in the position you were in prior to the accident. As such, it is not income and thus not reportable or taxable.
