If the IRS and...

If the IRS and the VA recognize the exclusion of disability payments 38 U.S.C. section 5301 as income using the term "whatsoever" how does some state government and federal agencies get away with counting it as income?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
