Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Discusses When Legal Settlements Are Taxable

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of uses the recent removal of Dr. Dao from a United Airlines flight and his subsequent settlement with United to discuss when the IRS does and not tax legal settlements.  

Fairhope, AL, May 18, 2017: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “Will The IRS Really Tax Public Humiliation,” in which Mr. Willis talks about the United Airline’s treatment of a paying customer.

Willis writes, “If you didn’t hear about the doctor who was pulled off a United Airlines airplane and made to give up the seat he had paid for, you must live under a rock.” He continues adding, “The story was all over the news for days after the event. It was one of the biggest public relations scandals of all times. Shocking in its callousness and brutality toward a paying customer.”

According to Willis, “Apparently United Airlines has reached a settlement with the good doctor who lost his seat and suffered physical, not to mention emotional injuries. As a tax attorney I can only hope he doesn’t have to pay taxes on his settlement.” “However,” says Willis, “I know that the IRS tries its best to grab as much as possible by making a distinction between emotional and physical damages.”
