Hi and welcome to Just Answer!


I am working on calculations... please stay with me...


Nice to need you again. Let me know if you need additional information.


Social Security – 85% will be taxable

Dan $19,824 – taxable $19,824*85%=$16850

Stevie 9,252 – taxable $9,252*85%=$7864

Total expected TAXABLE income - $70357


Assuming standard deduction, no dependents, no other deductions, and you both are under 65 – estimated tax liability $6900 minus $800 make work pay credit = ~$6100.

If you both are above 65 – estimated tax liability would be ~$5780.

So – if your income tax withholding is expected to be $9,866 – that will cover your liability and you will have a refund.


That is wonderful news. Thanks. I would like to print this. Any idea how I do that?


Just figured out how to do it. Thanks for the great and timely results.
