Are you even required to file? What is your 2016 income and how much of SSDI did you receive?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
My main total for ssdi for the year was 14,124.00 but for a month is 1,177.00. but I had to not go over my limit of work amount. And that would be 1,040.00
Tax Professional: emc011075, Tax adviser replied 6 months ago

So you earned $1,040 for the entire year? Going over the SSDI limit has nothing to do with your filing requirements.

Hi. my name's Lane I can help.

...

Please request the call and I can help.

...

I WILL concur, however, that based on the numbers you may not have a need to file taxes at all.

...

For social Security to be taxable, your total PROVISIONAL income (SSA sometimes refers to this as "Combined Income," - a very misleading ter - needs to be above certain levels.

...

No one pays federal income tax on more than 85 percent of his or her Social Security benefits based on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules. If you:

  • file a federal tax return as an "individual" and your combined income* is
    • between $25,000 and $34,000, you may have to pay income tax on up to 50 percent of your benefits.
    • more than $34,000, up to 85 percent of your benefits may be taxable.

  • file a joint return, and you and your spouse have a combined income* that is
    • between $32,000 and $44,000, you may have to pay income tax on up to 50 percent of your benefits
    • more than $44,000, up to 85 percent of your benefits may be taxable.

  • are married and file a separate tax return, you probably will pay taxes on your benefits.

*Note:

Your adjusted gross income
+ Nontaxable interest
+ ½ of your Social Security benefits
= Your "combined income

SO, as you can see if 1/2 of your social security income plus other income isn't above 25000 (32000 for joint filers) then it's very possible that you don't HAVE to file ... the TAXABLE income might not be above the filing threshold

of one standard deduction and one personal exemption.

...

Now, whether you may have worked and earned enough to put the social security in jeopardy is a completely different issue (although filing taxes is one way that Social Security can pick up the income)

...

If your employer gave you W-2 or 1099 then that's the other way Social Security can puck up the income (even when you didn't make enough to need to file)

...

So, as you can see there are a couple of different issues here.

...

Then there's the THIRD possibility; That you might have disaility specific costs that could RAISE how much you could earn.

...

I'll offer the call now so that we can talk.
