If you're still interested in an answer:

Unless you do not have a filing requirement, and this is Social Security income (rather than disability income or welfare benefits from Social Security), you need to report the income on line 14a of form 1040A or line 20a of form 1040. Depending on your other income, from 0% to 85% of the amount is reported on line 14b/20b, and is taxable.

You should have received a 1099-SSA from Social Security. If you haven't you can request a replacement.

If you still want a refund, I understand, but there's aren't many experts on at midnight Pacific time.
