This thought suddenly occurred to me. Considering the fact I'm on S.S I might not have to. Until I get married I'm living with my parents so I really don't know. Does anyone have the answer to this?

I don't think you have to pay taxes on money that is already someone else's taxes.

Very funny. I figured that much.
It wasn't meant to be funny. If it was your own money coming back to you as SS payouts, then it WOULD be taxable. But, this is not the case for you.

I am very confused lol. I literally know nothing about this. I can't stress that enough. My mom handles all my money and manages my bank account as of right now.

Yes,If you have enough income, my wife being disabled does, as does my dad who is also disabled.

I'm on Social Security Disability and no you do not pay taxes on that as it is money that comes from your previous wages that have already been taxed. It's unreported tax on your tax return.

Are you on SSI or SSDI?
I believe they are the same thing as I went to see about going on SSI and they told me there was no difference in the amount as it has all been paid into from wages I had made.

I'm not a tax expert, so you should consult one (I was a financial advisor for a while, though).

As far as I know, SSI is Supplemental Security Income, and is never taxable.

SSDI is Social Security Disability Insurance and is technically taxable, but in practice most beneficiaries do not fall into a taxable bracket anyways and end up not paying taxes. A common exception is one you mentioned- if you are married and filing jointly, you may together fall into a taxable bracket and thereby end up paying taxes on your benefits.

I don't think it's really like that. Those payroll deductions are insurance premiums, not qualified or non-qualified contributions. Any benefits paid are insurance benefits, and do not come out of a personal account like a 401k.

A certain percentage from your paycheck pays into Social Security, but you do not set the percentage as the government does that. If you look on your W-2 form box #4 you will see Social Security Withheld. That is what is paid into Social Security as they set the amount you get every month from what you paid into it.

My husband and I file married and filing jointly, but I don't have to claim my SSDI as the taxes were already taken out when I was working and paying into it.

I beg to differ,my wife gets statements.she can and has asked ss to take taxes out so we don't owe as my mom and dad do.

If all you have is ssdi,ssi then yoi won't owe but they still report it.

I do get a statement at the end of the year, but I do not put the amount in, but only check the box that says disabled as my husband and I file married joint return.
