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

Just Answer is not associated with Social Security so we do not have access to your personal information.

You are correct. Having federal taxes withheld from your Social Security payments is completely voluntary.

The best way to determine if you have taxes withheld is to look at your SSA-1099 that you receive each year. If there is an amount in Box 6, you are having taxes withheld.

If you are having taxes withheld, you will need to complete Form W-4V and check the box next to "I want you to stop withholding federal income tax from my payments."

Mail or bring the form to your local Social Security office.

Here's the form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4v.pdf

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
