Illegal Income

Illegal Income

Income from an illegal act. Examples of illegal income include income from theft and drug dealing. Illegal income is taxed in the United States as if it were ordinary income. Interestingly, expenses one incurs in the conduct of an illegal activity (other than drug trafficking) may be tax deductible. For example, the IRS may allow deductions for bribes paid to foreign governments.
