I want to know how I can get my monthly social security

Customer Question
I want to know...

I want to know how I can get my monthly social security payment to reflect the new tax break that was implemented at the beginning of 2018?

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

What more do you need to know? My current social security payment has not reflected the decrease in federal taxes.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

I don't think so...

If social security benefits - is your ONLY income - none of them are taxable - and you will not have any tax liability.

In this case changes in the tax law will NOT affect you.

However if you have any other income besides social security benefits - let me know - and I will help to verify how the new tax law may affect you.

I receive a pension as well.
Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 4 months ago

Is that taxable pension? What is the amount reported on form 1099R box 2a?
