    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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

Some old Chinese guy, in a smokey back room of a run-down bar in East St. Louis. He uses a chalk board and a piece of chalk.

NO, NO there is the guy in the back room that has a dart board. He throws the darts to determine how far back to pay a vet & another to decide how much per month.

I thought that we all understood of the section in the VA works.

by law they are not supposed to take more than 15% of your SSD check even for money owed to the government I owed the PO when I got my SSD so they took nothing out of back pay and then notified me they were going to start the garnishment in 90 days and they did at 15% it took them almost 2 years, but I got 85% of the SSD check every month I would think the VA would be the same rules

but I go with the dart board theory

If you owe the IRS I believe you can hire lawyers who will negotiate with them for you to get a settlement. If you owe the VA you can negotiate also according to the rules. I see ads on TV all the time for lawyers who agree to negotiate with the IRS for back taxes. A lot of people owe the IRS millions and they negotiate because the IRS wants something as opposed to getting all of nothing.

Are you talking about a lump sum of retro from the VA? I'm having a little trouble understanding how you could owe taxes on that!

Salty I owed over 60,000 most was penalty and interest in 1991. I had used my retirement 401k to live on when I was not working, After 10 years the IRS will drop it as uncollectable. I ended up paying just a small amount.

Good Luck if you get a lump sum you might do what I did. I cashed the check and hid the cash. I hate the IRS worse than the VA.
