The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has held that in personal injury actions trial courts must instruct the jury, upon request of counsel, that any award is not subject to federal income taxes, and therefore, it should not add or subtract taxes in fixing the amount of such award. Domeracki v. Humble Oil & Refining Company, 443 F.2d 1245 (3d Cir. 1971).
