Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
If SS benefits are all you receive in the year (no wages, pension, interest....) then none is taxable to you.
Some people have to pay federal income taxes on their Social Security benefits. This usually happens only if you have other substantial income (such as wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that must be reported on your tax return) in addition to your benefits.
Tell me if you have other income and if you do then how much and what type is it (wages, pension...) then I can tell you the flat amount you require.
