Does a 100% disabled veteran need to worry about taxes this year?

A disabled veteran may be entitled to tax-free disability income from the federal government. However, other government benefits, as well as other sources of income, may push the veteran over the threshold for filing a return. This means a return must be filed, even if no taxes are owed. What’s more, even if the veteran is below the filing threshold, there are situations in which a return must be filed nonetheless, such as if the homebuyer credit was claimed in 2008, subject to a 15-year repayment period, so that part must be repaid this year.

Estimated tax

Advance payment of current tax liability based either on wage withholdings or installment payments of your estimated tax liability. To avoid penalties, you generally must pay to the IRS either 90% of your final tax liability, or either 100% or 110% of the prior year’s tax liability, depending on your adjusted gross income.
