I'm not sure what you are asking, but "disability" is not an income tax filing status. Any disability benefits you received may be taxable to you as income; that depends on a lot of different factors. You should seek the help of a good income tax preparer (preferably a really good CPA or enrolled agent) to help you figure out the correct way to file your income taxes. Best wishes to you.

When should you hire taxation lawyers? Tax attorneys can assist individuals and businesses in a number of situations. Start-up businesses should talk to a tax lawyer to understand the tax implication of various business structures. Companies should also seek legal counsel on issues related to payroll taxes, sales taxes, use taxes and international tax issues. Individuals and couples can benefit from a tax lawyer's advice when engaged in estate planning, if you may have committed tax fraud, or if you're facing an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or state tax audit.
