It does sound like something isn't right. I will need more information to help you. Could you elaborate on your gross income for me? Tell me how much of each type.
The taxable amount of Social Security benefits varies based on the amount of your other income. It can be up to 85% taxable if your other income plus half of the SS benefits exceeds $34,000 (or $44,000 if Married). Sounds like this is the case for you.
I hope this has been helpful to you.
