Can you verify the dollar amounts again. There is an "!" mark and I do not know if you intended a 1.

Is your income $1290 and $1980?

I am working on your answer now. I am sorry for the delay. It takes some time to prepare a complete answer. Please note the phone call requests are generated automatically from the system. I do not control them.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,

Gerald

I haven't heard back from you . So I am assuming that the amounts are:

$1290 and $1980

This gives you a total Social Security income of $25050 per year. As a married couple filing jointly you have NO tax liability.

Based on this you do NOT have to file an income tax return.

Please note: Information is educational and not given as legal advice. Only your local attorney can give legal advice. I can't establish or accept an attorney-client relationship with you. All posts are available for public viewing.
