My only income, other than the settlement, was non taxable disability for 2011 and I'm now on the verge of receiving SSDi back pay from 2009. I never received anything about the taxability for my settlement and when I contacted my atty he requested the documents from the other side but received no response. He sent me an email saying I should assume it wasnt taxable. I know I'm filing late but I did this waiting to see if i got anything. If I file and find they did indeed report it but I didnt get anything do I have any recourses?Thank you! I'm not looking to take action against anyone, just to make sure I take care of any tax responsibility. The 1099 was actually supposed to be sent through my atty who, as mentioned above, has requested it by email twice this year and has received no response. the recourses I asked about were more along the lines of penalties if it was reported to the IRS and I have tried to get the information but they havent responded.
