An oxymoron is a term for a  figure of speech . [1]  It is made up of two or more  words  that seem to be opposite to each other, or actually are opposite. (From Wikipedia).
Why are "disposable" and "income" opposite to each other? Regardless of how many lists you've read it in, it doesn't make sense, unless you mean something else by "oxymoron", which, BTW, literally translates as "sharp-dull", which is an example of what an oxymoron should be:)
