It depends on the rest of your income.
For some people, none of the SSA benefits are taxable.
For others, up to 85% is included in their income.
The formula for singles is 1/2 of theSSA benefits plus all other income. If the total is less than $25,000, none of the SSA benefits are taxable.
If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, we deduct $1 from your benefit payments for every $2 you earn above the annual limit.
For 2009, that limit is $14,160.
