Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. I have a few questions to clarify a things: Are you talking about her personal return? Does she have any other income? Do you know her filing status and whether she is anyone's dependent?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I made 21625.20 last year. I am not anyone's dependent. I am married.

Then yes, the gross Social Security benefits of $3,447 get reported on box 20a of Form 1040, however with that income level none of it would be taxable so box 20b would be zero. I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions.Thanks, Jonathan
