My son and I are receiving survivor benefits from Social

Customer Question

Hello

SS is not taxable by itself. If you had other income then some of the SS could be taxable. You do not add your amount and your son's together.

Just look at your SS and to half of that add any other income you received in the year. If that amount is $25000 or more then some of your SS could be taxable.
