The question of whether or not your credit card rewards are income — and reportable to the IRS — depends on whether you are dealing with a rebate or a windfall. If it’s a windfall, you are supposed to report it as income and pay taxes on it. If it’s a rebate, though, you are in the clear. The good news is that most credit card rewards programs qualify as rebates.
