LEV :

Hi and welcome to Just Answer!

LEV :

If you file a joint tax return and use a standard deduction - you may have taxable income up to $19,800 in 2010 - and still will not owe any income taxes. Your taxable income might include taxable pensions, taxable part of your social security benefits, interest earned in the back, etc.

LEV :

If you know your taxable pensions or any other taxable income - I will estimate your possible tax liability. Please let me know if you need any help or references.

Customer:

Expert:  Lev replied 3 years ago.

If you're aged 55 to 59, a tax offset may be available on the taxable portion of your income payments. Because you're over 60 pension payments (and lump sum withdrawals) are tax-free.

For other taxable income - the current resident's tax-free threshold is $6,000
