How would you feel about paying a tax... on a tax? Did you know that a growing number of Americans are doing just that? If you receive Social Security, you might be one of them.
Social Security was signed into law by President Roosevelt in 1935. At the time, the U.S. Treasury ruled that the benefit payments were gifts, and would not be subject to tax. That ended in 1983 when Congress changed the law to make 50% of Social Security benefits subject to taxation... and it got worse... in 1993, Congress upped the ante by making up to 85% of your Social Security benefits taxable.
The culprit that causes your Social Security to possibly be taxed is "Provisional Income". If you are currently receiving Social Security benefits, it is essential that you sit down with your financial professional to review your IRS 1040 tax form to identify, and if necessary reduce this problem.
