Any reimbursement for damage to your property is not taxable to the extent it was used to repair the property. If it was a total loss, if the reimbursement exceeded your basis and was not reinvested comparable property, a portion would be taxable. Payments for food, lost profits, and the like are taxable income. With limited information, I cannot give you a complete answer. I would suggest consulting a local CPA or other tax preparer to be certain this matter is properly accounted for on your tax return.
