So I'm doing my taxes and I ran across a question about being permanently or totally disable at anytime during the year.

So I'm wondering, does having a major surgery that puts you completely out of work qualify you for this?
IRS says you can answer yes if both of the following apply:
1. You cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a physical or mental condition.
2. A doctor determines the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least a year or can be expected to result in death.

I mean, it is really vague and you could bend those definitions. I mean "technically" I could have been expected to be disabled for a year if my recovery time from the first surgery and, if I had my second surgery as planned, the recovery time for that could have been up to a year.

Hey, you can't blame a person for looking for ways of getting more money back, lol.
