The following was posted this to my User talk page by User:Rmcpherson. It seems like it might be a discussion that other participants in TaxAlmanac could contribute to.

I'm not clear what the issues are and hope that Robert will flesh out the question.

Client injured on job, now in a wheel chair. Employer paying disability pay untill she received her SSI lump sum payment to cover the last 3 years. With the lump sum payment she paid back the employer. How do you suggest this be handled. It dosen't seem like she should pay 85% on this lump sum as some would think.

I'd suggest Rmcpherson review Social Security and Disability Repayment, Social Security Disability Question, and others like them in the archives, which should help narrow down the questions at hand.

SSI should be non-taxable. If she paid taxes on the disability received in prior years, she may want to research "Claim of Right".
