Here's a Laddered CD calculator:" http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/cd/cd-ladder-calculator.aspx

...

(There are many out there)

...

And here's an excellent calculator for calculating tax-ability of Social Security:

...

https://www.calcxml.com/calculators/how-much-of-my-social-security-benefit-may-be-taxed

...

But to look at the tax effect you'll either have to use a tax product or one of the better calculators out there because you'll have, either, to drop everything into a tax return, or run the Calcxml calculator above to see how much of the social security is taxed ... add that to the CD income (and any other income) then calculate, based on filing status, standard deduction, etc to get to the tax bill
