So I am in the process of getting through a schedule award. I am 74% permanent partial disability in my right knee after knee replacement two years ago. My lawyer is working on the CA–7. if I did the figures correctly the award will be over $300,000, my question is does the IRS tax that as wages? If they decide to do the monthly payments, how long do they have to pay it off? And I understand there is a three or 4% take away from the lump sum amount, which obviously would hurt with the taxes, if IRS taxes the money.

Any advice or information is much appreciated!!
