If someone telling that you will be jailed because of not filing tax return - that is likely the person is not related to the IRS and just want to take your money - do not reply and do not provide any personal information!

If your ONLY in come is from social security benefits - NONE of these benefits are taxable and you are NOT required to file your tax return.

Let me know if you need any clarification this matter.
