Hi. My name's Lane ... sorry for the bot (real person here)

...

I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice, to clients on three continents, since 1986.

I’m reading your question now.

Bear with me a moment while I type up my response.

….

Then if you have further questions we can go from there.

If you're using Turbotax or on of the other packages, you should be able simply to input the amounts when asked, and the program will calculate how much (IF ANY) of the Social Security is taxable.

...

If you're actually trying to do this by hand you'll have either to use the worksheet in IRS publication 915 OR use one of the available online calculators to do what that worksheet does.

...

Here's an excellent calculator for this: https://www.calcxml.com/calculators/how-much-of-my-social-security-benefit-may-be-taxed
