I'm a disabled and unemployable military veteran. I received Forms 1099 from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and from USAA. However, I didn't receive a 1099 from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). What should I do?

These benefits you received from the VA aren’t taxable:

  • Pensions
  • Annuities
  • Similar allowances for personal injuries or sickness resulting from active service

So, you won't receive a 1099 from the VA. So, you have the Forms 1099 you need to file. Now, you need to determine if you have enough taxable income required to file a return.

You won’t be taxed on disability benefits you receive if both of these apply:

  • You received the benefits from a disability insurance policy you bought.
  • You paid the premiums for the policy with after-tax dollars.

However, you should include in your income any Social Security disability benefits you receive. This is true of any Social Security benefits you receive.
