Do I have to report Social Security disability income tax — SSDI Taxes?
Regarding Social Security disability tax, if you’re required to file a return, Social Security disability income (SSDI) is taxed the same as other Social Security benefits.
None of your SSDI is taxable if half of your SSDI plus all your other income is less than:
- $25,000 if filing single, head of household, or married filing separately — And you and your spouse lived apart all year
- $32,000 if married filing jointly
- **fdSocSecTaxableInc3** if married filing separately — And you and your spouse lived together at all during the year
However, if half of your SSDI plus all your other income is more than the amounts above, part of your benefits is taxable. The amount of SSDI Taxes you will owe will depend on the total amount of your benefits and other income. Usually, the higher that total amount, the greater the taxable part of your benefits.
If a portion of your benefits is taxable, usually up to half of your benefits will be taxable. However, up to 85% of your benefits can be taxable if either of these situations applies:
- The total of half of your benefits and all your other income is more than $34,000 — or $44,000 if married filing jointly.
- You’re married filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during the tax year.
Use Worksheet 1 in Publication 915 to figure the taxable portion of your SSDI benefits.
