I've applied service related disability from the Sheriffs

I've applied for a service related disability from the Sheriffs Dept. I was told my retirement pay would be approx. $7000.00 per month of which 50% would be tax free and I would pay taxes on the other 35%. How does that work? I was thinking 50% of $7000.00 but that doesn't make sense to only pay another 35% in taxes...why does it not equal 100%? I am lost and need to figure out what this all means.

My mother receives military SBP and DIC. VA made the determination that she was eligible

My mother receives military SBP and DIC. VA made the determination that she was eligible and VA started paying her DIC in Jul 2014 with an effective date of May 1 2013. How can I correct the Form 1099 since the SBP (taxable income) should have been reduced due to the offset of DIC (no taxable income) to June 2014? DFAS says they do not correct 1099. It would appear that since her effective date (which would offset her SBP) was May 1, 2013 that I could get the taxable amount changed purposes.

Hi, I received disability compensation from the state for

Hi,I received disability compensation from the state for approximately one year (a few months in 2012 and most of 2013). When I first received the disability I was employed but was terminated because I was unable to return work. I continued to receive the disability benefits through the state until they were exhausted at the beginning of October of 2013. I cannot figure out if my benefits are taxable after I was terminated because I was already receiving disability benefits from the state and was therefore unable to apply for unemployment. Are my benefits taxable?Thank you.

Hi...I have a question regarding taxes and being a disabled

Hi...I have a question regarding taxes and being a disabled veteran. I live in MN. On the renters refund tax form, there is a line requesting you to enter all "non taxable" income. However, how can my disability compensation payments count as "additional income" when it's non taxable income in the first place? Something about it doesn't seem to make sense. I believe it's line 5 on form M1PR. Thank You, Jon:)
