By Everett M. Lo
Social Security Administration’s Regional Public Affairs Office in the New York Region

When it comes to Social Security benefits, you may be wondering who must pay taxes on them and who does not. Let’s look at the numbers.If you file a federal tax return as an "individual" and your total income is more than $25,000, then the answer for you is yes: you’ll have to pay federal taxes on your benefits. If you file a joint return and you and your spouse have a total income more than $32,000, you’ll be expected to pay federal taxes as well. If your taxable income is below those thresholds, there is no need to pay taxes on your Social Security benefits.

There was a husband and wife getting ready to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. The two of them did everything together. They became friends when they were still in school. They were sweethearts before they even graduated. Their courtship lasted for years and they tied the knot at what they considered then to be the “ripe old age” of 26.
