My husband was killed in a motorbike accident by a drunk driver. I am awaiting a settlement from the Road Accident Fund and I have a few questions please. 1. Will I be taxed on the amount paid out to me for my kids and I
2a. Will the fund deduct the amount before the payout?
2b. Or must I pay it afterwards and how does that work?
3. How much is the tax? I was 26 when he was killed, and my kids 3years and 8 months respectively... I am scared the government made me wait all this time for my money and now they want half of it!

I am sorry to hear of your loss. RAF payments are not taxable as they are seen to be insurance similar to a life policy.
