The money received from VA disability is untaxable/unclaimed income that does not have to be reported.

This can get confusing for example we have real estate tax credit in my state, I have to check a box saying that I get VA benefits at 100% but I only list income from Social Security and that is the only income they count.

On the other hand about 2 years ago I had to file bankruptcy, they couldn't take any of my VA money, but they did count it as income to figure out what I would have to pay. I had to file a Chapter 13 and pay each month for 3 years, this is my last year. Yeah!

I imagine if they had not counted my VA my payments would have been lower, but they say it's legal to do it that way. So what you gonna do. I just pay it and hopefully this year will go by fast and I'll be all done with them.

I would call the office that handles this AZ and get the skinny from them.

Tbird, I had this happen to be recently in Virginia.

I put in for disability exemption for real estate taxes and when I filled out the paper work it only asked for SS payments and railroad I think? Anyhow did not put VA payments down. They called me and said they have to include ALL INCOME and that included my VA. With that added in and the wife's we made to much!?

Will not have to do that in Virginia now because they just passed an amendment to the Virginia constitution exempting all 100% P&T vets without regard to income! looking forward to not having to pay taxes!!

This is a great benefit finally in a state that lives and breathes military!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
