Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
If the total benefits received do no exceed $25,000.00 for a single individual, the benefits will not be taxable. Social Security benefits are not regarded as income when the total amount of the benefits is less than $25,000.00 and thus not taxable. So, whether you can include the amount received as income would depend on the amount of the benefits received. For more information, see Publication 915 and 501:
