Another major area of our practice is representation in the area of disability taxation for public safety officers. This range of professions has many unique considerations, and more often than not, most non-attorneys get it wrong in this area because they do not understand the interaction of state and federal law as to what is or what is not excludable from income where a disability retirement, or disability pay is involved. The basis for exclusion of certain monies received on the basis of disability, whether temporary or permanent, is very technical and not suitable to the practice of most tax professionals without a legal background.

Whether you have a tax issue regarding industrial injuries while in service (4800, 4810, DP or 4850 time), or a tax issue regarding the award of a disability retirement, we can help.
