Generally, if Social Security is your only income, your benefits are not taxable. Depending on your filing status and other income, either half or 85 percent of your social security benefits is taxable.
Your benefits are taxable if you're single and one half of your Social Security benefits plus all your other income is greater than $25,000, or if you're married and that amount is greater than $32,000.
