Free e-file for 2011 Permanent and total disability. Free e-file for 2011    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011 See Physician's statement , later. Free e-file for 2011 Substantial gainful activity. Free e-file for 2011   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. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Free e-file for 2011 It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Free e-file for 2011 However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free e-file for 2011    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Free e-file for 2011 Sheltered employment. Free e-file for 2011   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Free e-file for 2011 These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Free e-file for 2011   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Free e-file for 2011 Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Free e-file for 2011 The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free e-file for 2011 Physician's statement. Free e-file for 2011   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. Free e-file for 2011 You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Free e-file for 2011    Figure 33-A. Free e-file for 2011 Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Free e-file for 2011 Please click the link to view the image. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011 Veterans. Free e-file for 2011   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. Free e-file for 2011 VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Free e-file for 2011 You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Free e-file for 2011 Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Free e-file for 2011   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. Free e-file for 2011 For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Free e-file for 2011 If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Free e-file for 2011   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.

Free e-file for 2011 Disability income. Free e-file for 2011   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Free e-file for 2011 Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Free e-file for 2011 It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011 Payments that are not disability income. Free e-file for 2011   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011   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. Free e-file for 2011 Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Free e-file for 2011 Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Free e-file for 2011 The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Free e-file for 2011 The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Free e-file for 2011 The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Free e-file for 2011 If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Free e-file for 2011 See How to Claim the Credit , later. Free e-file for 2011 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. Free e-file for 2011 How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you.
