Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help.

Disability payments from the Veterans' Administration are tax-exempt and should not be included as income on your Form 1040 (they do not need to be reported anywhere on the form). See this page https://goo.gl/11n07s on the IRS website. The DFAS should provide you with a 1099-R that should report all your taxable benefits and any withholding.

I hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions.

Thanks, Jonathan
