    Only if your total income from all sources equals $25K or more (half of your social security plus any other income). Then you will owe taxes on a portion of your social security benefit. This is an IRS issue - not a social security issue. If you owe income taxes you can have income taxes deducted from your social security benefits.

    If that is your only income, no. If you do have other income, that other income plus one half of your total SS benefit for the year cannot add up to more than $25,000. When it does, some of your SS may be taxable.

    That is at the federal level.

    At the state level, it's different in every state.

    If the ss is your only income, no. If you have other income to, maybe, depending on amount.

    Maybe.

    If that is your only income, then probably not.

    If you also have other income, then probably yes.

    You don't have to file anything.

    Probably your payments put you in the category of people who must file a return. If you find the special rules on Social Security result in your paying too much tax, then you should arrange to have tax withheld from your payments next year.
