Customer Question

I am a 67 year old on Social Security full retirement in 2015 I earned 67500 for a consulting job. Do I have to file taxes on this money.

Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 9 months ago.

Yes, you do have to file taxes on the amount. However, whether you would pay taxes on the amount would depend on your deductions.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
OK let's start from the beginning, I am disable but when I turned 66 years of age Social Security granted me full retirement. It was my understanding I could work and make as much as 41K without having to file I am trying to find out will I or can I deduct that amount from the 67500K and file taxes on the remaining balances.
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 9 months ago.

No. You must file taxes on ALL your income and then take the proper deductions that you are entitled.
