Is surrogate mother compensation taxable income?

By Natalia Álvarez.
Last Update: 04/18/2018

The truth is, there is no definitive answer to this question. However, as a general rule, it depends on whether it is considered income by the IRS or not. In case it is, then yes, as a surrogate you will be required to pay income taxes both on a federal and state level.

If your contract lists the compensation as pain and suffering for being pregnant, theoretically it should not be taxed.
