SS may be taxable (some of it) if you have other income. This is true for survivor benefits too.
You add half your SS benefit and all your other income and if that amount is more than your BASE (set by filing status) then some of your SS could be taxable.
Check that amount above to see if it is more than the amount below for your filing status
