Customer Question
I'm 68 and thinking...

I'm 68 and thinking about taking out social security while I continue to work. I.e., this year I have a before-tax income of maybe $72k. If I additionally get SS at $2243 per month, how will that affect my taxes next year?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

Not that I know of.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

If you continue earning 72K and start collecting SS benefits, 85% of your benefits will be included in your income. It will increase your income by about 23K, possibly pushing you into higher tax bracket.
