Non-taxable Wages Definition
Non-taxable wages are income sources that attract no taxes and are clearly defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
The U.S. Dept. of the Treasury defines income as any wages received in the form of money, services, or property. While income sources like scholarships and insurance premiums are non-taxable, salaries, wages, tips as well as unemployment compensation, are fully taxed by the U.S. government.
