Customer Question

Good Morning:
I have a quick question for you. I turned 66 in April of 2015 and stared collecting Social Security in May of the same year. I am also employed full time. When I file my 2015 income tax forms, do I have to pay any taxes on the Social Security I received in 2015?
Thank you for our help.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

If your social security income will be taxable or not and how much depends on your other income and your filing status. If you give me the information I will be happy to check it for you. What I need is how much social security income you received in 2015, how much of other income your received i 2015 and what's your filing status. If your filing status is married filing jointly, both spouses' income has to be counted.
