Most pensions are but read the back of the 1099 form you received from them.   It will tell you if it is or not or read the 1040 booklet. Anything that is listed as wages is taxable and some pensions that YOU may have paid half for is divided in half and only part is taxable. Most H&R Block co will answer your question over the phone too.
