You may owe taxes on part of your social security income, even though you and your husband are both past 65 -- it depends on how much other income you have.

When social security is your only income, it won't be taxable to you. 

But... when you receive income other than social security, part of your social security income might be taxable.  Please see the TurboTax FAQ "Is my Social Security income taxable?" below for a more complete explanation.
