Zip Taxes :

Welcome to Just Answers, I will do my best to Answer your Question.

Zip Taxes :

IRS states that if your filing status are the following:

Zip Taxes :

Single = 9,350

Zip Taxes :

Single and over 65 = 10,750

Zip Taxes :

That is the minimum before you have to file.

Zip Taxes :

Though, if you had any money with held from your check for IRS or State, you should file so you can get all the money back plus possible EIC and Schedule M, Making Work Pay Credit Refun.

Zip Taxes :

Thanks :)

you could not have read my question..............married filing jointly over 62 2inthe year 2000 from the years 2004 til 2008 making annually 580 and 1200 on social security which is taxable 50% i believe

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

plus 11,484 and 5400=16484 +1/2 of social security $ 9000 approx for a grand total of $25484 this figure was less in 2003 but lets use it anyway just to make sure we;ve been doing the right thing only

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

differance now in 2008 we were 71 and 74 years of age the question still is do we or are we required to file a income tax return

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

error in first line of question should be 62 and 65 years of age 5;16,5;27,5;30 and now all one question

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

you've given more disclaimers than answers

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

JACUSTOMER-dbtb7axb- :

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I will give the best answer that I can with the information provided.

 

Hello,

I am sorry that you are having trouble getting an answer to your question. I have read your original exchange, and it appears that you and your wife file jointly and are both over 65, and have 11484 per year of pension income, and $22284 in Social Security Income. Your SS income is not necessarily 50% taxable, but in order to find out in any IS taxable, you are correct that you add 50% of your SS to your other income and compare it to your "base amount" ---which is $32000.

 

Your filing threshold for 2010 is $20900. So right now, since none of your SS benefits are taxable, your potentially taxable income is $11484 and you do not have to file a federal tax return.

 

If your SS benefit amount stays the same, using 2010 numbers, you can make approx. $9374 before you would be required to file a return. At this level of income, your SS benefits would still not be taxable at all.

 

Please let me know if I can assist you further.
