Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
VA disability is not taxable nor will it by itself make your SS taxable. So you can receive as much of those as you possibly want and still not be required to file.
If you have other sources of income then you may have to file and some of the SS could be taxable.
You have to file a return if your taxable income is more than your personal exemption and standard deduction amount. This changes every year because the personal exemption changes.
For 2016 that amount will be $10350 for single individuals. So if you have other income than the VA or SS that may mean you have to file a return.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)
