Social Security and Taxes

Many soon-to-be retirees don’t know what’s in store for them when it comes to collecting Social Security after retirement. And, how if things weren’t set up correctly, come tax time, they may end up owing a lot more than they’d planned for.

social-securityThis week on the DL Show, David speaks candidly on what you need to know about Social Security and the taxation that those distributions are and can be subject to in the future.

During the first half hour, David explains the origin of Social Security—basically, the government created way of getting the old workers out to make room for the new—and the basics of how the government has managed to reach into your pocket yet again by taxing your Social Security as income. (Yes folks, that means you potentially could be paying taxes on money you’ve already paid taxes on!)

In the last half, David discusses:

  • The practice of spending retirement assets down to avoid extra taxation.
  • How SS is taxed differently—people may have to pay federal income taxes if they have other substantial income (such as wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that must be reported to the IRS) along with his/her benefits.
  • How important it is to coordinate all of your current/future assets within your retirement.
  • How single/married SS income is taxed differently.
