Taxes on Social Security Benefits

The Social Security benefits you receive during retirement may not be completely tax-free income. In general, Social Security income is not taxed; it is only when you earn additional income (either by continuing to work or from investments) that tax begins to play a role in your Social Security income. If,however, you do not earn or receive other income throughout the year, you should not have to worry about being taxed on your Social Security benefits.
