#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

How do I know if I’m considered disabled for tax purposes?

In tax terms, you’re considered permanently and totally disabled if both of these criteria apply during the tax year: 

  1. You can’t participate in a significant amount of productive activities because of your physical or mental condition.
  2. A qualified physician determines that your condition either:
    • lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least a year, or
    • can be deemed as life threatening

Go to this section in Credit Karma Tax: Personal Information

If you’re permanently disabled, it’s important that you let us know while entering your personal information in Credit Karma Tax. You can indicate the number of months you were affected by the disability within the tax year.
