File 1040x online free Permanent and total disability. File 1040x online free    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free See Physician's statement , later. File 1040x online free Substantial gainful activity. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. File 1040x online free It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. File 1040x online free However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free Sheltered employment. File 1040x online free   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. File 1040x online free These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. File 1040x online free   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. File 1040x online free Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. File 1040x online free The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. File 1040x online free Physician's statement. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. File 1040x online free    Figure 33-A. File 1040x online free Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. File 1040x online free Please click the link to view the image. File 1040x online free Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. File 1040x online free Veterans. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. File 1040x online free You can get this form from your local VA regional office. File 1040x online free Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. File 1040x online free If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. File 1040x online 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.

File 1040x online free Disability income. File 1040x online free   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. File 1040x online free Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. File 1040x online free It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free Payments that are not disability income. File 1040x online free   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. File 1040x online free Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. File 1040x online free The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). File 1040x online free The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. File 1040x online free The limits are shown in Table 33-1. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free See How to Claim the Credit , later. File 1040x online 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. File 1040x online free How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. File 1040x online 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).
