It's tax season and Robert Clifford, senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, wrote an article that explains the new law regarding the federal taxing of civil damages.

In "Tax time also brings revised rules," that was published by the Chicago Lawyer, Clifford explains how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) removed the tort-type tests in determining whether certain income that is the result of personal physical injuries or physical sickness is taxable income. The IRS also clarified the application of its rules on the taxability of emotional distress damages in new rule that took effect Jan. 23 this year.
