State income tax filing free    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. State income tax filing free A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. State income tax filing free See Physician's statement , later. State income tax filing free Substantial gainful activity. State income tax filing free   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. State income tax filing free Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. State income tax filing free   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. State income tax filing free It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. State income tax filing free However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. State income tax filing free    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. State income tax filing free Sheltered employment. State income tax filing free   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. State income tax filing free These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. State income tax filing free   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. State income tax filing free Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. State income tax filing free The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. State income tax filing free Physician's statement. State income tax filing free   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. State income tax filing free You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. State income tax filing free    Figure 33-A. State income tax filing free Are You a Qualified Individual?

State income tax filing free Veterans. State income tax filing free   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. State income tax filing free VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. State income tax filing free You can get this form from your local VA regional office. State income tax filing free Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. State income tax filing free   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. State income tax filing free For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. State income tax filing free If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. State income tax filing free   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked.

State income tax filing free It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. State income tax filing free It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. State income tax filing free Payments that are not disability income. State income tax filing free   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. State income tax filing free Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. State income tax filing free   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. State income tax filing free Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. State income tax filing free Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. State income tax filing free The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). State income tax filing free The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. State income tax filing free The limits are shown in Table 33-1. State income tax filing free If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. State income tax filing free See How to Claim the Credit , later. State income tax filing free If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. State income tax filing free How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. State income tax filing free Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A).
