Withholding Income Tax From Your Social Security Benefits.

You may ask Social Security Administration to withhold federal taxes from your Social Security

  • When you apply for benefits OR if you are already receiving benefits:

 

  • If you are already receiving benefits or if you want to change or stop your withholding, you'll need a form W-4V from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

    You can download the form, or call the IRS toll-free number 1-***-***-**** and ask for Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request.- I have attached form W-4V

When you complete the form, you will need to select the percentage of your monthly benefit amount you want withheld. You can have 7%, 10%, 15% or 25% of your monthly benefit withheld for taxes.

Note: Only these percentages can be withheld. Flat dollar amounts are not accepted.

If you want to know how much a particular percentage is equal to in dollars, call SSA at 1-***-***-****.
