Is long term disability income taxable?
With Disability insurance, the taxation of benefits is based on how the premiums were paid. If the premiums are tax deducted, then benefits will be taxable as ordinary income. However, if the premiums were not tax deducted (meaning paid with after-tax dollars), the benefits will not be subject to income tax.

VA Disability Benefits You do NOT include disability benefits you receive from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in your gross income. In particular some of the pay…ments which are considered disability benefits include: *.Disability compensation and pension payments for disabilities paid either to veterans or their families, *.Grants for homes designed for wheelchair living, *.Grants for motor vehicles for veterans who lost their sight or the use of their limbs, or *.Benefits under a dependent-care assistance program. The VA publishes an annual benefits booklet, a comprehensive guide for Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors. If you are a military retiree and receive your disability benefits from the VA, go to IRS gov web site and use the search box for IRS Publication 525 for more information.

No it is not taxable
Are short term disability benefit payments taxable for an employer provided and paid short term disability plan?
Answer Yes, all employer paid benefits and wages are taxable. There is a way around that if you are an executive. 4lifeguild
Yes it does. Any form of income counts towards calculating your means test. Social Security incomes do not count as income. I just visited my lawyer today. The only question …we had was if my VA Disability would count, because there is nothing in the books that show one way or the other about VA disability. It specifically states that SSDI does not apply or count towards your income with filing Chapter 7/13. Although they are going to check, they are positive that disability income of any sort does not apply towards your income. IF you are:a veteran, ANDyou are disabled (as defined in 38 U.S.C. §3741(1)),The term "disabled veteran" means (A) a veteran who is entitled to compensation under laws administered by the Secretary for a disability rated at 30 percent or more, or (B) a veteran whose discharge or release from active duty was for a disability incurred or aggravated in line of duty. ANDyour indebtedness occurred primarily during a period in which you were: on active duty (as defined in 10 U.S.C. §101(d)(1)), orThe term "active duty" means full-time duty in the active military service of the United States. Such term includes full-time training duty, annual training duty, and attendance, while in the active military service, at a school designated as a service school by law or by the Secretary of the military department concerned. Such term does not include full-time National Guard duty.performing a homeland defense activity (as defined in 32 U.S.C. §901(1)), Title 32. National Guard / Chapter 9. Homeland Defense Activities / § 901. Definitions: In this chapter: (1) The term "homeland defense activity" means an activity undertaken for the military protection of the territory or domestic population of the United States, or of infrastructure or other assets of the United States determined by the Secretary of Defense as being critical to national security, from a threat or aggression against the United States. THEN you are exempt from the means test.
The taxable status of short term disability depends upon how you pay the premium. If you pay for short term disability at work via pre-tax deductions, the benefit will… be taxable. If you pay with after tax deductions, you keep the entire benefit free of any taxes.
If you are referring to Short-Term Disability Insurance, it is taxable if your employer made the contribution, and not taxable if you made the contribution. This is because it… is treated as a taxable benefit from employment that you have not been taxed on already. Please let me know if you are referring to something else. Thanks, Ragu HandyTax (Disability Tax Credit Consultants)
it depends, there are some regions or countries that allow tax on your SSN, and some are don't include or don't get tax on it.... See below link: http://official-online-ss…n-card.org/
Short term disability policies offer a variety of benefit periods (how long the benefit lasts): 3, 6,12, and 24 month benefit period options are very common. Check y…our policy for the benefit period.
Fibromyalgia can be or become a very serious issue over time, specially if not properly treated. It is a condition that insurance companies do not want to insure on an individ…ual basis. If you have fibromyalgia, try to obtain income protection through work as it will be the best option for you to obtain coverage. Group Disability insurance can be offered on a guaranteed standard issue basis, meaning that anyone can get it. However, there are certain guidelines that must be met.
The long-term coverage ends at retirement age (age 65 or 67) or up to age 70 if you continue working at least 30 hours per week. The benefit period however, can be selected fr…om: 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, to age 65, 70 or lifetime.
This would depend on the type of Injury payout the above question is about you could have some taxable amount and some nontaxable amounts involved in the payout amount. The i…tems below would be added to all of your gross worldwide income and taxed as ordinary income at your marginal tax rate.Interest on any awardCompensation for lost wages or lost profits in most casesPunitive damages. Don't include in your income compensatory damages for personal physical injury or physical sickness (whether received in a lump sum or installments). Damages for emotional distress are taxable unless they are due to a physical injury or sickness. Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute in the nature of a workers' compensation act. The exemption also applies to your survivors. The exemption, however, does not apply to retirement plan benefits you receive based on your age, length of service, or prior contributions to the plan, even if you retired because of an occupational sickness or injury. If part of your workers' compensation reduces your social security or equivalent railroad retirement benefits received, that part is considered social security (or equivalent railroad retirement) benefits and may be taxable. For a discussion of the taxability of these benefits, see Other Income under Miscellaneous Income, later.

Maybe. Disability payments can considered to be partially or fully taxable income.
Canada's Revenue Agency has a long term disability insurance for disabled individuals. The amount received from this does, in fact, count as taxable income.
