Non-taxable Wages Definition

Non-taxable wages are income sources that attract no taxes and are clearly defined by the Internal Revenue Service.

Non-Taxable Wages Extended Definition
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.
