Why is my Ssocial Securty being taxed

Up to 85% of Social Security Retirement/Disability/Survivors benefits becomes taxable when all your other income plus 1/2 your social security reaches:

  • Married Filing Jointly - $32,000
  • Single or Head of Household - $25,000
  • Married Filing Separately - 0

Why is my Ssocial Securty being taxed

The amount of your Soc Sec that is taxed is dependent upon your other (Joint) income (which can change from year to year).
