My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.

No, you cannot do so unless it was within 12 months of the original election. You can suspend your benefits going forward but you cannot repay your benefits to reduce your taxes for 2015.

From the social security website:

"If you are receiving Social Security Retirement benefits and you change your mind about when they should start, you may be able to withdraw your Social Security claim and re-apply at a future date.

However, if you change your mind 12 months or more after you became entitled to retirement benefits, you cannot withdraw your application."

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
