Yes, you do have to file taxes on the amount. However, whether you would pay taxes on the amount would depend on your deductions.

OK let's start from the beginning, I am disable but when I turned 66 years of age Social Security granted me full retirement. It was my understanding I could work and make as much as 41K without having to file I am trying to find out will I or can I deduct that amount from the 67500K and file taxes on the remaining balances.
Social Security Expert: PhillipsEsq., Attorney-at-Law replied 2 years ago

No. You must file taxes on ALL your income and then take the proper deductions that you are entitled.
