Yes. Beginning with the tax year 2020, qualifying firefighters may exempt the following benefit payments from income to the extent the payments are included in their federal adjusted gross income:
Lump sum benefit payments to a firefighter as a result of a cancer diagnosis up to a lifetime benefit of $50,000.
Monthly benefit payments as a result of a specific injury or illness of $3,000 per month for 36 consecutive months to a career firefighter or certified volunteer firefighter or $1,500 per month to a non-certified volunteer firefighter otherwise not eligible for employment benefits.
In addition, firefighters may take a deduction for 100% of the insurance premiums they paid with after tax dollars to the extent the premiums have not been deducted from the federal adjusted gross income.
