To find out whether any of your benefits shown on Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099 may be taxable, compare the base amount (explained later) for your filing status with the total of: One-half of your benefits, plus All your other income, including tax-exempt interest. Irs1040ez When making this comparison, do not reduce your other income by any exclusions for: Interest from qualified U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez savings bonds, Employer-provided adoption benefits, Foreign earned income or foreign housing, or Income earned by bona fide residents of American Samoa or Puerto Rico. Irs1040ez Children's benefits. Irs1040ez   The rules in this publication apply to benefits received by children. Irs1040ez See Who is taxed , later. Irs1040ez The SSA issues Form SSA-1099 and Form SSA-1042S. Irs1040ez The RRB issues Form RRB-1099 and Form RRB-1042S. Irs1040ez These forms (tax statements) report the amounts paid and repaid, and taxes withheld for a tax year. Irs1040ez You may receive more than one of these forms for the same tax year. Irs1040ez See the Appendix at the end of this publication for more information. Irs1040ez Each original Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S is valid unless it has been corrected. Irs1040ez The RRB will issue a corrected Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S if there is an error in the original. Irs1040ez A corrected Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S is indicated as “CORRECTED” and replaces the corresponding original Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S. Irs1040ez You must use the latest corrected Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S you received and any original Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S that the RRB has not corrected when you determine what amounts to report on your tax return. Irs1040ez Figuring total income. Irs1040ez   To figure the total of one-half of your benefits plus your other income, use Worksheet A, discussed later. Irs1040ez If the total is more than your base amount, part of your benefits may be taxable. Irs1040ez   If you are married and file a joint return for 2013, you and your spouse must combine your incomes and your benefits to figure whether any of your combined benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez Even if your spouse did not receive any benefits, you must add your spouse's income to yours to figure whether any of your benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez If the only income you received during 2013 was your social security or the SSEB portion of tier 1 railroad retirement benefits, your benefits generally are not taxable and you probably do not have to file a return. Irs1040ez If you have income in addition to your benefits, you may have to file a return even if none of your benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez Base amount. Irs1040ez   Your base amount is: $25,000 if you are single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er), $25,000 if you are married filing separately and lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, $32,000 if you are married filing jointly, or $-0- if you are married filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during 2013. Irs1040ez Worksheet A. Irs1040ez   You can use Worksheet A to figure the amount of income to compare with your base amount. Irs1040ez This is a quick way to check whether some of your benefits may be taxable. Irs1040ez     Worksheet A. Irs1040ez A Quick Way To Check if Your Benefits May Be Taxable Keep for your records A. Irs1040ez Enter the amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099. Irs1040ez Include the full amount of any lump-sum benefit payments received in 2013, for 2013 and earlier years. Irs1040ez (If you received more than one form, combine the amounts from box 5 and enter the total. Irs1040ez ) A. Irs1040ez   Note. Irs1040ez If the amount on line A is zero or less, stop here; none of your benefits are taxable this year. Irs1040ez B. Irs1040ez Enter one-half of the amount on line A B. Irs1040ez   C. Irs1040ez Enter your taxable pensions, wages, interest, dividends, and other taxable income C. Irs1040ez   D. Irs1040ez Enter any tax-exempt interest income (such as interest on municipal bonds) plus any exclusions from income (listed earlier) D. Irs1040ez   E. Irs1040ez Add lines B, C, and D E. Irs1040ez   Note. Irs1040ez Compare the amount on line E to your base amount for your filing status. Irs1040ez If the amount on line E equals or is less than the base amount for your filing status, none of your benefits are taxable this year. Irs1040ez If the amount on line E is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. Irs1040ez You need to complete Worksheet 1, shown later. Irs1040ez If none of your benefits are taxable, but you otherwise must file a tax return, see Benefits not taxable , later, under How To Report Your Benefits . Irs1040ez   Example. Irs1040ez You and your spouse (both over 65) are filing a joint return for 2013 and you both received social security benefits during the year. Irs1040ez In January 2014, you received a Form SSA-1099 showing net benefits of $7,500 in box 5. Irs1040ez Your spouse received a Form SSA-1099 showing net benefits of $3,500 in box 5. Irs1040ez You also received a taxable pension of $22,800 and interest income of $500. Irs1040ez You did not have any tax-exempt interest income. Irs1040ez Your benefits are not taxable for 2013 because your income, as figured in Worksheet A below, is not more than your base amount ($32,000) for married filing jointly. Irs1040ez   Even though none of your benefits are taxable, you must file a return for 2013 because your taxable gross income ($23,300) exceeds the minimum filing requirement amount for your filing status. Irs1040ez     Filled-in Worksheet A. Irs1040ez A Quick Way To Check if Your Benefits May Be Taxable Keep for your records A. Irs1040ez Enter the amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099. Irs1040ez Include the full amount of any lump-sum benefit payments received in 2013, for 2013 and earlier years. Irs1040ez (If you received more than one form, combine the amounts from box 5 and enter the total. Irs1040ez ) A. Irs1040ez $11,000 Note. Irs1040ez If the amount on line A is zero or less, stop here; none of your benefits are taxable this year. Irs1040ez B. Irs1040ez Enter one-half of the amount on line A B. Irs1040ez 5,500 C. Irs1040ez Enter your taxable pensions, wages, interest, dividends, and other taxable income C. Irs1040ez 23,300 D. Irs1040ez Enter any tax-exempt interest income (such as interest on municipal bonds) plus any exclusions from income (listed earlier) D. Irs1040ez -0- E. Irs1040ez Add lines B, C, and D E. Irs1040ez $28,800 Note. Irs1040ez Compare the amount on line E to your base amount for your filing status. Irs1040ez If the amount on line E equals or is less than the base amount for your filing status, none of your benefits are taxable this year. Irs1040ez If the amount on line E is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. Irs1040ez You need to complete Worksheet 1, shown later. Irs1040ez If none of your benefits are taxable, but you otherwise must file a tax return, see Benefits not taxable , later, under How To Report Your Benefits . Irs1040ez   Who is taxed. Irs1040ez   Benefits are included in the taxable income (to the extent they are taxable) of the person who has the legal right to receive the benefits. Irs1040ez For example, if you and your child receive benefits, but the check for your child is made out in your name, you must use only your part of the benefits to see whether any benefits are taxable to you. Irs1040ez One-half of the part that belongs to your child must be added to your child's other income to see whether any of those benefits are taxable to your child. Irs1040ez Repayment of benefits. Irs1040ez   Any repayment of benefits you made during 2013 must be subtracted from the gross benefits you received in 2013. Irs1040ez It does not matter whether the repayment was for a benefit you received in 2013 or in an earlier year. Irs1040ez If you repaid more than the gross benefits you received in 2013, see Repayments More Than Gross Benefits , later. Irs1040ez   Your gross benefits are shown in box 3 of Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099. Irs1040ez Your repayments are shown in box 4. Irs1040ez The amount in box 5 shows your net benefits for 2013 (box 3 minus box 4). Irs1040ez Use the amount in box 5 to figure whether any of your benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez Example. Irs1040ez In 2012, you received $3,000 in social security benefits, and in 2013 you received $2,700. Irs1040ez In March 2013, SSA notified you that you should have received only $2,500 in benefits in 2012. Irs1040ez During 2013, you repaid $500 to SSA. Irs1040ez The Form SSA-1099 you received for 2013 shows $2,700 in box 3 (gross amount) and $500 in box 4 (repayment). Irs1040ez The amount in box 5 shows your net benefits of $2,200 ($2,700 minus $500). Irs1040ez Tax withholding and estimated tax. Irs1040ez   You can choose to have federal income tax withheld from your social security benefits and/or the SSEB portion of your tier 1 railroad retirement benefits. Irs1040ez If you choose to do this, you must complete a Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Statement. Irs1040ez   If you do not choose to have income tax withheld, you may have to request additional withholding from other income or pay estimated tax during the year. Irs1040ez For details, see Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, or the instructions for Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals. Irs1040ez U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez citizens residing abroad. Irs1040ez   U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez citizens who are residents of the following countries are exempt from U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax on their benefits. Irs1040ez Canada. Irs1040ez Egypt. Irs1040ez Germany. Irs1040ez Ireland. Irs1040ez Israel. Irs1040ez Italy. Irs1040ez (You must also be a citizen of Italy for the exemption to apply. Irs1040ez ) Romania. Irs1040ez United Kingdom. Irs1040ez   The SSA will not withhold U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax from your benefits if you are a U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez citizen. Irs1040ez   The RRB will withhold U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax from your benefits unless you file Form RRB-1001, Nonresident Questionnaire, with the RRB to provide citizenship and residency information. Irs1040ez If you do not file Form RRB-1001, the RRB will consider you a nonresident alien and withhold tax from your railroad retirement benefits at a 30% rate. Irs1040ez Contact the RRB to get this form. Irs1040ez Lawful permanent residents. Irs1040ez   For U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez income tax purposes, lawful permanent residents (green card holders) are considered resident aliens until their lawful permanent resident status under the immigration laws is either taken away or is administratively or judicially determined to have been abandoned. Irs1040ez Social security benefits paid to a green card holder are not subject to 30% withholding. Irs1040ez If you are a green card holder and tax was withheld in error on your social security benefits because you have a foreign address, the withholding tax is refundable by the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the IRS. Irs1040ez SSA will refund taxes erroneously withheld if the refund can be processed during the same calendar year in which the tax was withheld. Irs1040ez If SSA cannot refund the taxes withheld, you must file a Form 1040 or 1040A with the Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301 to determine if you are entitled to a refund. Irs1040ez You must also attach the following information to your Form 1040 or 1040A: A copy of the Form SSA-1042S, Social Security Benefit Statement, A copy of the “green card,” and A signed declaration that includes the following statements:    “The SSA should not have withheld federal income tax from my social security benefits because I am a U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez lawful permanent resident and my green card has been neither revoked nor administratively or judicially determined to have been abandoned. Irs1040ez I am filing a U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez income tax return for the tax year as a resident alien reporting all of my worldwide income. Irs1040ez I have not claimed benefits for the tax year under an income tax treaty as a nonresident alien. Irs1040ez ” Nonresident aliens. Irs1040ez   A nonresident alien is an individual who is not a citizen or resident of the United States. Irs1040ez If you are a nonresident alien, the rules discussed in this publication do not apply to you. Irs1040ez Instead, 85% of your benefits are taxed at a 30% rate, unless exempt (or subject to a lower rate) by treaty. Irs1040ez You will receive a Form SSA-1042S or Form RRB-1042S showing the amount of your benefits. Irs1040ez These forms will also show the tax rate and the amount of tax withheld from your benefits. Irs1040ez   Under tax treaties with the following countries, residents of these countries are exempt from U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax on their benefits. Irs1040ez Canada. Irs1040ez Egypt. Irs1040ez Germany. Irs1040ez Ireland. Irs1040ez Israel. Irs1040ez Italy. Irs1040ez Japan. Irs1040ez Romania. Irs1040ez United Kingdom. Irs1040ez   Under a treaty with India, benefits paid to individuals who are both residents and nationals of India are exempt from U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax if the benefits are for services performed for the United States, its subdivisions, or local government authorities. Irs1040ez   If you are a resident of Switzerland, your total benefit amount will be taxed at a 15% rate. Irs1040ez   For more information on whether you are a nonresident alien, see Publication 519, U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez Tax Guide for Aliens. Irs1040ez Exemption from withholding. Irs1040ez   If your social security benefits are exempt from tax because you are a resident of one of the treaty countries listed, the SSA will not withhold U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez tax from your benefits. Irs1040ez   If your railroad retirement benefits are exempt from tax because you are a resident of one of the treaty countries listed, you can claim an exemption from withholding by filing Form RRB-1001 with the RRB. Irs1040ez Contact the RRB to get this form. Irs1040ez Canadian or German social security benefits paid to U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez residents. Irs1040ez   Under income tax treaties with Canada and Germany, social security benefits paid by those countries to U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez residents are treated for U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez income tax purposes as if they were paid under the social security legislation of the United States. Irs1040ez If you receive social security benefits from Canada or Germany, include them on line 1 of Worksheet 1, shown later. Irs1040ez How To Report Your Benefits If part of your benefits are taxable, you must use Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Irs1040ez You cannot use Form 1040EZ. Irs1040ez Reporting on Form 1040. Irs1040ez   Report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on line 20a and the taxable part on line 20b. Irs1040ez If you are married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, also enter “D” to the right of the word “benefits” on line 20a. Irs1040ez Reporting on Form 1040A. Irs1040ez   Report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on line 14a and the taxable part on line 14b.

Irs1040ez   If you are filing Form 1040EZ, do not report any benefits on your tax return. Irs1040ez If you are filing Form 1040 or Form 1040A, report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on Form 1040, line 20a, or Form 1040A, line 14a.

Irs1040ez How Much Is Taxable? If part of your benefits are taxable, how much is taxable depends on the total amount of your benefits and other income. Irs1040ez Generally, the higher that total amount, the greater the taxable part of your benefits. Irs1040ez Maximum taxable part. Irs1040ez   Generally, up to 50% of your benefits will be taxable. Irs1040ez However, up to 85% of your benefits can be taxable if either of the following situations applies to you. Irs1040ez The total of one-half of your benefits and all your other income is more than $34,000 ($44,000 if you are married filing jointly). Irs1040ez You are married filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during 2013. Irs1040ez Which worksheet to use. Irs1040ez   A worksheet you can use to figure your taxable benefits is in the instructions for your Form 1040 or 1040A. Irs1040ez You can use either that worksheet or Worksheet 1 in this publication, unless any of the following situations applies to you. Irs1040ez You contributed to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA) and you or your spouse is covered by a retirement plan at work. Irs1040ez In this situation you must use the special worksheets in Appendix B of Publication 590 to figure both your IRA deduction and your taxable benefits. Irs1040ez Situation (1) does not apply and you take an exclusion for interest from qualified U. Irs1040ez S. Irs1040ez savings bonds (Form 8815), for adoption benefits (Form 8839), for foreign earned income or housing (Form 2555 or Form 2555-EZ), or for income earned in American Samoa (Form 4563) or Puerto Rico by bona fide residents. Irs1040ez In this situation, you must use Worksheet 1 in this publication to figure your taxable benefits. Irs1040ez You received a lump-sum payment for an earlier year. Irs1040ez In this situation, also complete Worksheet 2 or 3 and Worksheet 4 in this publication. Irs1040ez See Lump-Sum Election , later.

Irs1040ez He must include 85% of his social security benefits in his taxable income because he is married filing separately and lived with his spouse during 2013. Irs1040ez See How Much Is Taxable earlier. Irs1040ez Bill enters $4,000 on his Form 1040, line 20a, and $3,400 on Form 1040, line 20b. Irs1040ez Lump-Sum Election You must include the taxable part of a lump-sum (retroactive) payment of benefits received in 2013 in your 2013 income, even if the payment includes benefits for an earlier year. Irs1040ez This type of lump-sum benefit payment should not be confused with the lump-sum death benefit that both the SSA and RRB pay to many of their beneficiaries. Irs1040ez No part of the lump-sum death benefit is subject to tax. Irs1040ez Generally, you use your 2013 income to figure the taxable part of the total benefits received in 2013. Irs1040ez However, you may be able to figure the taxable part of a lump-sum payment for an earlier year separately, using your income for the earlier year. Irs1040ez You can elect this method if it lowers your taxable benefits. Irs1040ez Under the lump-sum election method, you refigure the taxable part of all your benefits for the earlier year (including the lump-sum payment) using that year's income. Irs1040ez Then you subtract any taxable benefits for that year that you previously reported. Irs1040ez The remainder is the taxable part of the lump-sum payment. Irs1040ez Add it to the taxable part of your benefits for 2013 (figured without the lump-sum payment for the earlier year). Irs1040ez Because the earlier year's taxable benefits are included in your 2013 income, no adjustment is made to the earlier year's return. Irs1040ez Do not file an amended return for the earlier year. Irs1040ez Will the lump-sum election method lower your taxable benefits?   To find out, take the following steps. Irs1040ez Complete Worksheet 1 in this publication. Irs1040ez Complete Worksheet 2 and Worksheet 3 as appropriate. Irs1040ez Use Worksheet 2 if your lump-sum payment was for a year after 1993. Irs1040ez Use Worksheet 3 if it was for 1993 or an earlier year. Irs1040ez Complete a separate Worksheet 2 or Worksheet 3 for each earlier year for which you received the lump-sum payment. Irs1040ez Complete Worksheet 4. Irs1040ez Compare the taxable benefits on line 19 of Worksheet 1 with the taxable benefits on line 21 of Worksheet 4. Irs1040ez If the taxable benefits on Worksheet 4 are lower than the taxable benefits on Worksheet 1, you can elect to report the lower amount on your return. Irs1040ez Making the election. Irs1040ez   If you elect to report your taxable benefits under the lump-sum election method, follow the instructions at the bottom of Worksheet 4. Irs1040ez Do not attach the completed worksheets to your return. Irs1040ez Keep them with your records. Irs1040ez    Once you elect this method of figuring the taxable part of a lump-sum payment, you can revoke your election only with the consent of the IRS. Irs1040ez Lump-sum payment reported on Form SSA-1099 or RRB-1099. Irs1040ez   If you received a lump-sum payment in 2013 that includes benefits for one or more earlier years after 1983, it will be included in box 3 of either Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099. Irs1040ez That part of any lump-sum payment for years before 1984 is not taxed and will not be shown on the form. Irs1040ez The form will also show the year (or years) the payment is for. Irs1040ez However, Form RRB-1099 will not show a breakdown by year (or years) of any lump-sum payment for years before 2011. Irs1040ez You must contact the RRB for a breakdown by year for any amount shown in box 9. Irs1040ez Example Jane Jackson is single. Irs1040ez In 2012 she applied for social security disability benefits but was told she was ineligible. Irs1040ez She appealed the decision and won. Irs1040ez In 2013, she received a lump-sum payment of $6,000, of which $2,000 was for 2012 and $4,000 was for 2013. Irs1040ez Jane also received $5,000 in social security benefits in 2013, so her total benefits in 2013 were $11,000. Irs1040ez Jane's other income for 2012 and 2013 is as follows. Irs1040ez   Income 2012 2013     Wages $20,000 $ 3,500     Interest income 2,000 2,500     Dividend income 1,000 1,500     Fully taxable pension   18,000     Total $23,000 $25,500   To see if the lump-sum election method results in lower taxable benefits, she completes Worksheets 1, 2, and 4 from this publication. Irs1040ez She does not need to complete Worksheet 3 because her lump-sum payment was for years after 1993. Irs1040ez Jane completes Worksheet 1 to find the amount of her taxable benefits for 2013 under the regular method. Irs1040ez She completes Worksheet 2 to find the taxable part of the lump-sum payment for 2012 under the lump-sum election method. Irs1040ez She completes Worksheet 4 to decide if the lump-sum election method will lower her taxable benefits. Irs1040ez After completing the worksheets, Jane compares the amounts from Worksheet 4, line 21, and Worksheet 1, line 19. Irs1040ez Because the amount on Worksheet 4 is smaller, she chooses to use the lump-sum election method. Irs1040ez To do this, she prints “LSE” to the left of Form 1040, line 20a. Irs1040ez She then enters $11,000 on Form 1040, line 20a, and her taxable benefits of $2,500 on line 20b. Irs1040ez Jane's filled-in worksheets (1, 2, and 4) follow.

Irs1040ez If line 21 above is zero, follow the instructions in line 10 for “No” on Worksheet 1. Irs1040ez Otherwise: Enter the amount from Worksheet 1, line 1, on Form 1040, line 20a, or on Form 1040A, line 14a. Irs1040ez Enter the amount from line 21 above on Form 1040, line 20b, or on Form 1040A, line 14b. Irs1040ez If you are married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, enter “D” to the right of the word “benefits” on Form 1040, line 20a, or Form 1040A, line 14a. Irs1040ez   Deductions Related to Your Benefits You may be entitled to deduct certain amounts related to the benefits you receive. Irs1040ez Disability payments. Irs1040ez   You may have received disability payments from your employer or an insurance company that you included as income on your tax return in an earlier year. Irs1040ez If you received a lump-sum payment from SSA or RRB, and you had to repay the employer or insurance company for the disability payments, you can take an itemized deduction for the part of the payments you included in gross income in the earlier year. Irs1040ez If the amount you repay is more than $3,000, you may be able to claim a tax credit instead. Irs1040ez Claim the deduction or credit in the same way explained under Repayment of benefits received in an earlier year in the section Repayments More Than Gross Benefits , later. Irs1040ez Legal expenses. Irs1040ez   You can usually deduct legal expenses that you pay or incur to produce or collect taxable income or in connection with the determination, collection, or refund of any tax. Irs1040ez   Legal expenses for collecting the taxable part of your benefits are deductible as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. Irs1040ez Repayments More Than Gross Benefits In some situations, your Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 will show that the total benefits you repaid (box 4) are more than the gross benefits (box 3) you received. Irs1040ez If this occurred, your net benefits in box 5 will be a negative figure (a figure in parentheses) and none of your benefits will be taxable. Irs1040ez Do not use Worksheet 1 in this case. Irs1040ez If you receive more than one form, a negative figure in box 5 of one form is used to offset a positive figure in box 5 of another form for that same year. Irs1040ez If you have any questions about this negative figure, contact your local SSA office or your local RRB field office. Irs1040ez Joint return. Irs1040ez   If you and your spouse file a joint return, and your Form SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 has a negative figure in box 5, but your spouse's does not, subtract the amount in box 5 of your form from the amount in box 5 of your spouse's form. Irs1040ez You do this to get your net benefits when figuring if your combined benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez Example. Irs1040ez John and Mary file a joint return for 2013. Irs1040ez John received Form SSA-1099 showing $3,000 in box 5. Irs1040ez Mary also received Form SSA-1099 and the amount in box 5 was ($500). Irs1040ez John and Mary will use $2,500 ($3,000 minus $500) as the amount of their net benefits when figuring if any of their combined benefits are taxable. Irs1040ez Repayment of benefits received in an earlier year. Irs1040ez   If the total amount shown in box 5 of all of your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099 is a negative figure, you can take an itemized deduction for the part of this negative figure that represents benefits you included in gross income in an earlier year. Irs1040ez Deduction $3,000 or less. Irs1040ez   If this deduction is $3,000 or less, it is subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to certain miscellaneous itemized deductions.
