Hello, I am 66 and am considering if I should start taking SSI but continue to work to the end of the year. The combined income might put me in a higher Tax Bracket. I could use the Social Security monthly payments to pay the extra tax and bank the rest. How do I calculate the best time to retire and start taking SSI? Thanks, Regards

I want to count my mother as a dependent for the 2016 tax year. She is married, but will be living separately from my father shortly and by the end of the year. She will be receiving $348/month from SS for the remainder of the year. I understand that some of her SS benefits could be taxed because she would be filing separately even though she will have lived with my father for part of the year (please confirm).How much do I need her to support her to be able to claim her as a dependent and get the head of household benefit. I understand that I need to provide half of her household expenses to qualify.

I worked in the US months last year. I got a job in Qatar

I worked in the US for 10 months last year. I got a job in Qatar and claimed tax exempt for 2 months. I went to file my taxes and the turbo tax said I was not eligible for child tax credit because of this. Is this correct? I am thinking there is a way to get my full refund still. I don't believe that I should miss out on Child Tax Credit because I worked 2 months in another country which would've been MAYBE $200 in taxes I would've paid.
