Taxes on SS disability
Anyone know the tax rate on SS disability?

My wife started collecting it and am unsure of the tax implications.

1. Paying taxes on your benefits

Some people who get Social Security have to pay taxes on their benefits. About one-third of our current beneficiaries pay taxes on their benefits. You will be affected only if you have substantial income in addition to your Social Security benefits.

* If you file a federal tax return as an individual and your income is more than $25,000, you have to pay taxes.
* If you file a joint return, you may have to pay taxes if you and your spouse have a combined income that is more than $32,000.
* If you are married and file a separate return, you will probably pay taxes on your benefits.

For more information, contact the Internal Revenue Service.

7. yes that is right
you have to file if you have other income. In my case the other income is dividends from savings over $400 a year. I don't pay taxes as my income is far too low to require any.

Sad isn't it really?

Don't I wish.
