Unfortunately, there is no law that allows for reimbursement of income taxes for an individual that reaches retirement. The government even makes you continue to pay into social security even while receiving social security retirement. You still must pay all income taxes and SSI taxes just like an individual under retirement age. If you have not yet reach full retirement age (age 66 and 2 months in 2017 and probably age 66 if you retired before) then they will even penalize you for earning significant income while receiving social security retirement. Once you reach full retirement age, this penalty is eliminated. So unfortunately, there will be no reimbursement for these taxes for you or anyone else in your situation, that is simply how the government taxes income.
