Almost everybody, either through deductions on their paycheck or through self-employment tax.
Yes. But if you go through the procedure to show you can't afford it, the IRS will stop.
Your husband and you draw Social Security and have tax taken out before you receive your check When you file your taxes do you have to again pay taxes on that money?
When you file you will calculate the correct amount of taxes that you actually owe. If not enough was taken out, you will have to pay more. If too much was taken out, you… will get a refund.. Yes the tax you had withheld is taxable...the entire amount you receive, whether you put it in a savings account at the bank, or one with the IRS is taxable. Tax due isn't deductible from taxable income...that would be circular.
The IRS can garnish up to 15% of your Social Security Disability check unless you work out an alternate repayment plan or are categorized as "uncollectible" due to income and …expenses. It would be in your best interest to contact the IRS to discuss your options.
No you do not have to have taxes taken out of your SS check. Unless you specifically request to have taxes taken out, they will not be taken out. But remember that whethe…r you have taxes taken out or not does not affect the taxability of your payments. At the end of the year, you have to fill out Form 1040 to figure out if you owe any taxes. If you didn't have enough taxes taken out, you will have to pay the difference at that time. If you had too much tax taken out, you will get a refund. Whether your SS benefits are taxable is a fairly complicated calculation that depends on your filing status, your total income, and amount of non-taxable income such as municipal bond interest. See Publication 915 for details of how to determine if your Social Security benefits are taxable: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p915.pdf
No....considering first that your employer pays half of the required contribution, and the way it is calculated and the way that is all reported would have to tie in mathamati…cally.. I gather you would like to report and pay on higher social security ages to have a higher SS benefit on retirement. Not at all sure that would be an advised way to get the financial benefit your after. SS contribution is 15.30 % of SS wages, which if your employed the employer must pay half, and if self employed you pay all. A string retirement contribution amount. If you reported additional self emplyment income, it would also be income tax income, and state tax, etc..so that really wouldn't work either.
