Customer Question
My 2017 tax return...

My 2017 tax return is showing a refund of 47,630 which equals the ss benefits paid to my husband and I. Feels like something is wrong :)

Accountant's Assistant: The Financial Software Technician will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I entered the amounts from box 5 for my husband and me; straight ss benefits paid, and the deductions. This is our only income. Should we be receiving it all back?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Financial Software Technician should be aware of?

Only other items are the charitable gifts.

i would go back and check it again.

your social security benefits do NOT go in the box for ss taxes paid on a w2
