Do you have to file taxes if you recieve social security retirement benefits

Social Security Retirement/Disability/Survivors benefits are reported on a form SSA-1099 and the benefits received are to be entered on a federal tax return. The benefits may be taxable depending on the amount of other income you have entered on your tax return.
However, if the Social Security benefits are the Only income to be reported on the tax return, then there is no reason or need to file a tax return.

ask SS admin what happened to your 1099.

It came in the mail and you probably overlooked it.
