You do not mention what kind of disability income you receive, and the amount. That would be critical information to give an accurate answer.

SSDI is not taxable. Anything else depends on what you have.

Whether you are on disability doesn't make any difference. You have to do whatever you would have to do if you were not on disability. If the amount of your income from other things, such as investments, is enough that you would have to file if you were not on disability, then you have to file even if you are on disability. If it's enough that you would have to file both federal and state if you were not on disability, then you have to file both. If you don't have any other income except disability, then you don't have to file. But it's not because you're on disability. It's because you don't have any income that's not from disability, so your situation is the same as a person without any income at all.

NINASGRAMMA is half right. If your annual income exceeds $25,000 then you must file a tax return and pay tax on your Social Security.
Answer #7 | 23/12 2013 08:48
depends on the kind of disability, if you need to claim this income on your tax return you will receive a tax form indicating what you received and what is taxable

If your income is Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and you have no other income, you do not have to file federal or state tax returns. If you have other income, you might have to file. If your income subject to tax is more than $10,000 you might have to file.
