Are Social Security Retirement benefits taxable?

Social Security retirement benefits are taxable for individuals who have earnings in excess of the income limits determined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. To ascertain what those earned income limits are for each year, individuals who work and draw social security retirement benefits should contact the Internal Revenue Service (1-800-829-3676) or the Social Security Administration. For your convenience, the Social Security Administration does offer voluntary federal tax withholding from Social Security retirement benefits.
