Since you didn’t include the breakdown of SS vs. Retirement I am going to make some suggestions/comments.

You most likely don’t have enough income to make any of your social security income taxable.  Please go to the link below for the social security benefits worksheet.  Work through the schedule and it will tell you whether or not any of your social security is taxable.

As for your retirement income, it was probably offset by personal exemption(s) and either itemized deductions or standard deduction.  For 2016 personal exemptions are $4,050 for each exemption claimed on your return. 

The standard deduction for 2016 is $6,300 for Single or Married Filing Separately, $9,300 for Head of Household and $12,600 for Married Filing Jointly.  If you are over the age of 65 your standard deduction increases by $1,250 for married taxpayers and by $1,550 for single taxpayers.

Please either print/preview your return to look at your forms by going to My Account (upper right of your screen), and click on Print Center, then Print, Save or Preview this Year’s Return.  Or you can go to My Account, Tools, View Tax Summary, then in the upper right click on Preview my 1040.  (See the screenshot below).
