Income protection payouts are generally tax free. If you pay for the premiums yourself from your net income then the money has already been taxed. This is why most insurers generally only allow you to insure 70% of your gross income as it works out as approximately the same as your net income.
Some self employed people or company directors pay for their income protection premiums via their business. This means that the benefits are paid out to the company and would be subject to tax. If you chose this option it would be best to consult a tax advisor or accountant for advice.
