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 benefits are not taxable. Military retirement pay based on age or length of service is considered taxable income for Federal income taxes. However, military disability retirement pay and Veterans' benefits, including service-connected disability pension payments, may be partially or fully excluded from taxable income.
If you are not considered 100% then the VA will split your payments and not report the non taxable portion on your 1099R.
