Using the Einstein and Bergmann-Thomson prescriptions, the energy and momentum distributions for the Bianchi type-V bulk viscous space-time are evaluated in both general relativity and the teleparallel gravity (the tetrad theory of gravity). It is shown that for the Bianchi type-V bulk viscous solution, the energy and momentum due to matter and fields including gravity are the same in both the methods used. This paper indicates an important point that these energy-momentum definitions agree with each other not only in general relativity but also in teleparallel gravity and sustains the results obtained by some physicist who show that the energy-momentum definitions of Einstein, Landau-Lifshitz, Papapetrou, Weinberg, Penrose and Bergmann-Thomson complexes give the same energy expression in general relativity.
