Please verify what is the amount of your Social Security and
the amount of your Long Term Disability from my former employer?
I will determine your filing requirements.
Your total Social Security disability income is $1,747 *12 months = $20964
Social security income may be partly taxable. To determine if any of your Social security benefits are taxable - we should add your other taxable income and half of SS benefits - if the amount is less than $25,000 - none of your SS benefits are taxable.
Your Long Term Disability income is $1,658.35 *12 months = $19896
Long-term care insurance contracts generally are treated as accident and health insurance contracts. Amounts you receive from them (other than policyholder dividends or premium refunds) generally are excludable from income as amounts received for personal injury or sickness.
So far none of your income are taxable.
