I have had a shoulder surgery due to a work injury. They have given me full pay for 60 days but are back paying me. During those 60 days do I pay taxes? I will be off more than the 60 days and they are taking my sick days and I am on pay differential. During that time am I still tax exempt?

Generally, Disability benefits are non taxable. But you must check with your tax person to make sure about the type of benefits you are receiving.
You need to file a claim for worker's compensation benefits that cover temporary disability benefits , ongoing medical treatment and a settlement for permanent disability and future medical care. Feel free to call me at 213-388-7070 for a free consultation.
