Amends the Internal Revenue Code to provide an additional $1,000 personal tax exemption for a taxpayer, his or her spouse, or a dependent who is disabled. Defines "disability" as an inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to a physical impairment which has lasted or will last continuously for at least 12 months and which requires a wheelchair for mobility. Disallows the additional exemption if the taxpayer or his or her spouse already receives an extra exemption due to blindness.
