Check with a tax expert first. I doubt this very much. But, companies who used Imprelis and got reimbursed by Dupont for doing some leg work on their behalf with documenting damage of homeowners' properties may have to pay taxes since I understand some received W-2s. Just because SS#s are asked for doesn't necessarily mean the IRS is involved with the homeowners side of things. You don't normally pay taxes when you receive a settlement from a car accident either. An injured party doesn't make a profit from being compensated for their loss. Some are never truly made whole anyhow. Check with a tax expert for what part of settlements or court judgements are taxable. Only certain things apply. These settlements aren't profit and for many they don't seem to even cover their full true damages at this point (see above comment about cost of gas line removal/replacement).
