You’ve gotten the notice in the mail on something you’ve purchased in the past. Whether, it was a stock, vehicle, or another item.
The notice promises big dollars to settle a lawsuit brought against the company. You fill out the required information and then send it in. You wait and wait.
Then you finally get a check for your portion of the settlement. Although, it a much smaller check then you expected. So what do you do with the check. Cash it and report the taxable income.
Unfortunately, your tiny settlement check that you received is taxable income. So where does it go on the Form 1040. The settlement goes on the Other Income line 22.
The settlement check may be small but it is still considered taxable income.
