I guess I don’t understand. I am a Veteran. We volunteer our service. We and our are given VA benefits and many other perks for serving.
Survivors benefit, death pension, is a tax free monetary benefit payable to low income, unmarried surviving spouse and/ or children of a deceased Veteran with wartime service.
Also VA will pay up to $300 toward burial and funeral related expenses.
We also GI educational benefits to surviving dependent spouse or child.
The list goes on and on...
We pay taxes on SS monies if combined with any other income.
Why would we not pay on this income also?
If you are under age 65 and receiving less than $12,000, the NO taxes need to be paid.
Our tax laws are so complicated. So much better to have a straight 10% on all income. Would put a lot of tax people out of work 🤭
