Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Yes, if you MAGI (modified adjusted gross income) is $80K per year your Social Security benefit will be partially taxable. The taxable percentage maxes out at 85%, though the threshold is based upon your filing status. Here is how the percentage of Social Security benefits get taxed: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/taxes.html. In addition, this video helps explain the calculation: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899144-is-my-social-security-income-taxable.
