Is My Disability Income Taxable?
If you have other substantial income in addition to your disability benefits, you may have to pay federal income taxes
Some people have to pay federal income taxes on their Social Security benefits. You will be required to pay federal income taxes on your Social Security benefits only if you have other substantial income (such as wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that must be reported on your tax return) in addition to your disability benefits.
No one pays federal income tax on more than 85 percent of his or her Social Security benefits based on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules. If you:
File a federal tax return as an "individual" and your combined income* is:
- between $25,000 and $34,000, you may have to pay income tax on up to 50 percent of your benefits.
- more than $34,000, up to 85 percent of your benefits may be taxable.
File a joint return, and you and your spouse have a combined income that is:
- between $32,000 and $44,000, you may have to pay income tax on up to 50 percent of your benefits
- more than $44,000, up to 85 percent of your benefits may be taxable.
File married but separate tax return:
- you probably will pay taxes on your benefits.
*Combined income equals your adjusted gross income plus taxable interest and one half of your Social Security benefits.
