When Are Retroactive Social Security Disability Checks Taxed?

Answer: The year of receipt. Many clients complain that after they have waited for years for a large retroactive check and then finally receive it, they are taxed in the year that it is received. This is how it has always been done and the retroactive check may not be prorated. I suggest that tax withholding is set up with Social Security before the check is received.
