He incurred $1,300 in medical costs, all of which were paid by the owner of the store. The store also gave him $1,000 for pain and suffering resulting from the injury. ASCI did not pay his salary during the two weeks he missed because of the accident. However, ASCI’s disability insurance plan paid him $1,500 in disability pay for the time he was unable to work.

The disability plan premiums and the disability benefit payments were not included in Paul’s W-2 wages reported in paragraph 3.
