W-2 For Year Ending 2011


TXNVYMOM

Question

Sorry I am probably asking a silly question..but this is the first year for my son to receive income from the VA. Will he get a W-2? If so is it mailed out. If it isn't mailed where do you find them. For instance he's on TDRL and can get his military W-2 online at mypay. I would appreciate any answers. Thank you!

VA disability is not income. It is not taxable. Therefor there is no reason to report it. Certain agencies (food stamps, medicaid) require it to be reported, but they specifically note that, in addition to income.

you need to get a tax accountant to tell you how to handle any payments from the military on his retirement benefits but none of his VA comp is taxable he should also be able to draw SSD benefits

Like the others have said, no W-2 for VA Disability. The W-2 for the military should be fairly simple depending on several variables, marriage status, dependents and so on. If, he is single he can file a 1040EZ. If, he is married with kids, make sure he knows about the child credit, and earned income tax credit.

When I fill out forms I read them carefully. If it asks for VA Disability Income I disclose it. If it is general I do not. This is my opinion and the way I deal with bureaucracy but to get an answer from me they have to ask the question so it is understandable.

If he is on TDRL it would not be a W-2 it would be a 1099R and it will tell you on his 1099R if it is taxable or not no need for an accountant for that I know this as I receve money from DFAS for being on TDRL when I got to mypay and look at my statment is say not taxable due to the nautre of your injuries (combat related) and like everyone else said VA money is not taxable or reportable to the IRS.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
