Paying income tax on Social Security benefits

Do I have to pay income taxes on the benefits I receive?


You will have to pay federal taxes on your Social Security benefits if you file a federaltax return as an individual and your total income is more than $25,000.  If you file a joint return, you will have to pay taxes if you and your spouse have a total income of more than $32,000.

Use the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 703 shown on the back of the SocialSecurity Benefit Statement, SSA Form 1099, to determine if any of your benefits may be taxable.

Social Security has no authority to withhold state or local taxes from your benefit.  Many states and local authorities do not tax Social Security benefits.  However, you should contact your state or local taxing authority for more information.

  1. In general, you are first eligible to sign up for Medicare Part A and Part B starting 3 months before you turn 65 and ending 3 months after you turn 65. Your state will automatically sign you up for Medicare (or if you need to sign up). Your Medicaid coverage will change after you’re eligible for Medicare.
