Is Social Security Disability back pay taxable

Troutman, NC |

My husband filed for disability over two years ago. It was finally granted and we received a check for $37,000. Will this be taxable? He had no other income and my income this year was $45,381. We do not have enough deductions to file the itemized return. thank you for your help

IRS Publication 915 should answer your questions, particularly how to handle the lump sum.
