Good Morning Just...

Good Morning Just a quick question: Do my SS Direct deposits have federal taxes withdrawn at the time of the deposit?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I don 't see a statement when the deposit is made. The funds are just deposited. For my future income tax information, I need to know if federal taxes have been taken out before the deposit. Does that make sense?

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Unless you elected to have federal taxes withheld from your Social Security payments, no tax is withheld. You have to specifically tell Social Security to withhold federal taxes.

If you look on your SSA-1099 (the form you receive each year in January), look in Box 6. If that box is blank, no federal taxes are being withheld.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
