Hi
I'm Anne. I've been preparing taxes for 27 years, and I'll be happy to help you, but I need just a little bit more information.
I understand that you are receiving Veteran's Disability, but you mentioned another disability income. Are you collecting SS disability? If not, can you tell me who's paying it? (Previous employer possibly?)
You mentioned something about back pay. Were you collecting disability from an employer and SS paid you a lump sum that includes payments for previous years?
Finally, do you have any other income other than the disability income for you and your spouse. Pension income?

I have a retirement income question. 5 years ago I retired
5 years ago I retired and moved to New York. I receive two retirement checks, one from the San Francisco Fire Department and one from California Public Employees Retirement system. Last year I found out that my checks were still having Calif. State income tax removed yet I was paying NY State income tax. I was being double taxed. So I had the retirement agencies stop withholding CA tax. I researched the issue and found that the 1995, Public Law 104-95 made it illegal for states to tax retirement income of individuals no longer residing in their state. Now my tax preparer says I owe tax for NY and for CA. She says it is a part of her tax program and it asks for an accounting of any "income earned as a non-resident derived from California?" When she puts our earned amount in that box she says the program says we owe CA $1,800, yet we are paying NY a similar amount. Can CA tax my retirement income even though I don't live there? … read more
