Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax 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.
Dividends are considered either “qualified” or “nonqualified.”
Qualified dividends are:
Nonqualified dividends are taxed at the same rates as ordinary income.
You may have no actual tax to pay on the dividends. If SSDI is your only other source of income and dividends are not over $25000 you will not have tax to pay.
If you would like me to do a rough estimate of your 2016 tax I would need to know income amounts (dividends, SSDI , any other income) and your filing status.
I would be happy to do the estimate.
