From what I gather and have read WC payments are tax free. If this is the case , how would this situation work.
I was injured on the job and was out for about 13 weeks. The entire time I was paid by my employer, as we have unlimited paid sick leave. My WC checks from the WC insurance was sent directly to my employer and I assume they cashed them or what ever they do.
If WC is tax free , my paychecks were taxed as normal. Would I actually be entitled to that money back? Meaning a refund of the tax paid on the "other " half of my paychecks?
