If your EDD income was purely state disability, and not unemployment compensation or family leave payments, then it is nontaxable income. You don't have to enter it anywhere on either your federal or your state tax return.
To be a bit more formal with the reasoning behind this conclusion, you should know that Disability Insurance (DI) benefits, in general, are not taxable . . . except where they are considered to be a substitute for unemployment compensation, or when they are paid to an individual who is ineligible for unemployment insurance (UI) benefits solely because of the disability.
Only in this instance, where DI benefits are received in lieu of UI benefits, will the income be taxable. In such cases the recipient should receive a Form 1099-G form (or a similar document) showing amounts paid and which are taxable. The IRS will also be furnished with the same taxpayer information.
