Do we have to pay taxes on our Social Security with income over $32,000, including half of our Social Security? -Margie


It sounds like you have a handle on things. For those that file jointly and have income, if one half of their Social Security added to their income is between $32,000 and $44,000, then 50 percent of the Social Security must be included as income. If your income, including half your Social Security, exceeds $44,000 then 85 percent of your Social Security will be included as income.
