Do I have to pay taxes on income from Social Security Disability (SSD) payments?

Social Security Disability payments are taxable income. but you still may or may not have to pay taxes on the income.

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are considered taxable income by both the federal and state governments. Whether or not you will be required to pay taxes on your benefits depends upon your total income (or total combined income if filing a joint return.) If your taxable exceeds tax thresholds, you may need to pay taxes on SSD income.

Most people on SSD will not have to pay taxes. This is largely due to total income being limited for recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI), who may also need to meet income requirements to qualify for SSD that would make it less likely to be in a higher tax bracket simply by default.
