Thank you for your question. You will file single. None of your social security will be taxable. However, you will need to file your taxes as your commissions are over $400 and you will need to pay a small amount of self employment taxes. Your income tax will be $250, which is simply the employment tax on the commission sales if filed on a 1099. If you received a W-2, you owe no tax but should still file to get a refund of any withholding.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
