Hi! Quick question - I was wondering if disability living allowance/other benefits are taxable as income? I've been desperately trying to figure out exactly what money is coming out where (on that note, this income calculator has been a huge help). If anyone could help me out it would be a huge help. Thanks in advance :)

Unsure off hand on DLA, income based JSA and ESA income related were not taxable benefits last I knew, however contribution based benefit did go towards overall tax allowance for the year and would be included in P60 totals, although no tax is taken from the benefit itself.
