Are you taxed on disability and retirement checks?
If either your employer bought the disability policy, or you purchased it with PRE-tax money (thru payroll deduction perhaps), then I believe disability benefits are taxable at ordinary income tax rates. If it was purchased with after tax money, usually not taxable. A good rule of thumb is: If YOU haven't paid taxes on the premiums, you're going to pay taxes on the benefits. If you mean "pension payments" when you say "retirement checks," then yes. It is taxed like ordinary income.

No, it is not a taxable income. Although they give you a 1099 at the end of the year. I would also check with your state laws and maybe a tax consultant if it is not your only… source of income.

The standard withholding on all withdrawals for 401k plans is 20%. There are two exlcusions to this and that is Required Minimum Distributions and Hardship Withdrawals. In add…ition, some plans also allow you to choose your withholding amounts on installment payments. Therefore, you can elect to have less than 20% withheld on installments.
This is not declared income and you will not have to pay income taxes on it. Same thing for child support. However, Alimony payments have to be delclared and will be taxed.
Yes they can
You don't have to pay taxes on it, and you don't even have to file. The government does not expect you to file, and people don't. See Publication 907 at http://www.irs.gov/pub…lications/p907/index.html. The year 2008 is different though. The IRS is giving a $300 ($600 if married filing jointly) tax rebate to people on disability, but you have to file to get the rebate. See http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/k1040a3.pdf.
The answer to your questions depends largely on other factors. I'd need to know your marital status and income information, how much you receive from Social Security and… how much from your pension. I can give you some general guidelines as set out by the IRS. _ In cases where Social Security is your only source of income, your income is not taxable, therefore there is no filing requirement. _ If you derive income from other sources in addition to Social Security it may become taxable if your modified adjusted gross income exceeds the "base" amount for your filing status. _ To determine your "base" amount there is a worksheet in the Form 1040 instruction booklet on page 25. (Link: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040gi.pdf ). _ 2007 base amounts are: · $32,000 for married couples filing jointly. · $25,000 for single, head of household, qualifying widow/widower with a dependant, or married individuals filing separately who did not live with their spouses at any time during the year. · $0 for married persons filing separately who lived together during the year. Note: HOW TO FIGURE OUT YOUR BASE AMOUNT 1. Add one-half of the total Social Security you received to all other income, including any tax exempt interest and other exclusions from income. 2. Then, compare this total to the base amount of your filing status. If the total is more than your base amount, then some of your benefits may be taxable.

Yes, except for the portions of the checks that represent a return of after-tax employee contributions, qualified Roth IRA and Roth 401k distributions, and return of after-tax… (non-deductible) traditional IRA contributions. Note that withholding on periodic payments from pension plans is optional. But the fact that no tax is withheld does not mean that the payments are tax-free. You will have to calculate the taxes and pay them when you file your tax return at the end of the year. Note also that if you have a substantial underpayment of taxes, you may be subject to an underpayment penalty. If you are referring to Social Security benefits, a portion of those can be taxable depending on your total income and your marital and filing status.
Yes and it is very possible that some of the retirement income could be taxable income on your income tax return.

You do not have to pay federal income tax in any state for worker's compensation disability checks. These payments are completely non-taxable. This is why the payment for disa…bility from worker's compensation is generally around 70% or your normal salary up to the state limit in your area. The other 30% would be in place of normal income tax.
The best way to get the correct answer for your specific case is to visit a Social Security office or call them (they will have records that nobody here will have access t…o that are needed to perform the calculations).
