Can you collect Social Security benefits in Massachusetts if you are collecting unemployment benefits?
The states that tax social security benefit checks for federal rate are Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. The states that tax on… the state rate of their states are Utah and Montana.
You will have to pay federal taxes on your Social Security benefits if you file a federal tax return as an individual and your total income is more than $25,000.
No, California is not one of the fourteen states that levy taxes against Social Security benefits.
Social Security doesn't withhold taxes from your benefit check unless you fill out a form specifically requesting them to, because many recipients don't owe taxes on their ben…efits. If Social Security is your only source of income and you receive less than $25,000 per year for a single person, or $32,000 for a couple filing jointly, your federal tax burden is 0%. If you believe you will owe taxes and want them withheld from your check, fill out Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request, available as a download on the Social Security website (see links).

If you received income from other sources, your be…nefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status. Your taxable benefits and modified adjusted gross income are figured in a worksheet in the Form 1040A or Form 1040 Instruction booklet. Before you go to the instruction book, do the following quick computation to determine whether some of your benefits may be taxable: * First, add one half of the total social security benefits that you received for the year to all your other gross worldwide income, including any tax exempt interest and other exclusions from income. * Then, compare this total to the base amount for your filing status. If the total is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. The 2009 base amount is: * $25,000 for single, head of household, qualifying widow/widower with a dependent child, or married individuals filing separately who did not live with their spouses at any time during the year Go to the IRS gov web site and use the search box for IRS Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits.
