Do I have to file income tax on my Social Security check?

NO. There are NO taxes deducted from Social Security payments. Social Security is NOT taxable income.

No of course not when you were making moneythey deducted federal income tax and social security tax from your weekly paycheck the money that you're getting back has already been taxed you do not have to turn it in you have already paid taxes on that money you're getting that money back now it's just like an income tax return that you get back once a year only the social security you get back in 60 years

As others have said
If ss is your only income no need to file
If you have other income there is a work sheet that will tell you if any of your SS is retired. An example a married couple with other income of $25,000 would have about 10% of their SS benefits as taxable income

You have to REPORT it on your income tax. You may or may not be required to PAY tax on it, depending on how much OTHER income you also have.

If you are single and social security is your only income - no. If you are married and you and your wife have no other income - no.
However, if you are single and 1/2 of your yearly social security income plus other income equals $25K then a portion of your SS benefit becomes taxable; $32K if married.

depends on how much your TOTAL income is. If ss is your only income, no need to file.

Not if SS is your only income

If it is your only income, no.
If you have other income (wages, pension, investments), maybe.
