Are Social Security Benefits Taxable? This is How it Works.

If your only source of income comes from Social Security you will not have pay any federal taxes. However, if you have other income such as a pension or a withdrawal from an IRA or 401(k) for instance, you may very well have to pay taxes. To determine whether your Social Security is taxable or not you need to determine your provisional income first. In this video, I will explain how to calculate provisional income, and share some examples of how your other income could make your Social Security benefits taxable. Depending on how much other income you have, you may have to pay taxes on up to 85% of your Social Security benefits.

There are 13 states I am aware of that tax Social Security. They all have different rules as to how it works in the particular state.
