If I'm retired do i have to pay taxes?
There are different kinds of retirement pay. Some, such as Illinois, exempt all retirement pay from taxes. Others exempt Social Security benefits, and/or military pensions, an…d/or public pensions, and/or private pensions, or nothing at all. So there is no one-size-fits-all answer to your question.. Instead, here is a good resource for you to explore: http://www.retirementliving.com/RLtaxes.html.
There are no different tax artes for people claiming to be retired if that's what you mean. Your tax is on income, whether you work at a job, ot make it through other means.
Do you think that a retired AIG executive who is receiving a $10 million annual pension should be exempt from taxes? We base income taxes on how much you make. We give a gen…erous allowance to low income people. People who make more have to pay something to support the country.
Retirees are not exempt from paying Alabama state tax. However, Alabama does not tax Social Security, Federal retirement benefits, Alabama state retirement benefits, and per…iodic distributions from private defined benefit pension plans. A "defined benefit" pension plan is a traditional pension plan where the employer guarantees a certain benefit when you retire. The does not include a 401k type of plan which is a "defined contribution" plan where you take your chances with your own investments. Distributions from IRA, 401k, etc plans are taxable in much the same manner as they are on your federal return. If you made deductible contributions to an IRA plan before 1982, you may be eligible for an additional adjustment. All other types of income are taxable the same for retirees as for anyone else.
Yes, I have to pay federal taxes on my NC state retirement but not state income tax. Not all of my social security is taxable, depending on my adjusted income. The amoun…t of social security that is subject to taxation is on a sliding scale. A more complete answer can be found at: http://www.fool.com/taxes/2002/taxes020315.htm
Yes. As long as you are still living and have enough gross worldwide income you will be required to file income tax returns and pay any income taxes that may be due. Even some… of retirement income could also be taxable income on your income tax return.
Yes it is very possible that would have to pay some state income taxes when you report all of your gross worldwide income on the income tax return for the year.
The answer depends on your individual circumstances. If you are retired and Social Security benefits are your only source of income, you may file, but generally will not be …taxed. If you also receive income from sources other than Social Security, your benefits will be taxed if your total taxable income exceeds a certain threshold. The formula is very simple. Your adjusted gross income (AGI), meaning income from all taxable sources, will fall into one of the following categories. Depending on your personal situation, you could be taxed on 0% of your Social Security benefits, on 50% of your benefits, or on 85% of your benefits. For a single taxpayer the base amount (cap) is $25,000.If your total AGI is $25-34,000, you will pay tax on 50% of your Social Security benefitsIf your total AGI is above $34,000, you will pay tax on 85% of your benefits For married couples filing jointly, the base amount is $32,000If your total AGI is $32-$44,000, you will pay tax on 50% of your Social Security benefitsIf your total AGI is above $44,000, you will pay tax on 85% of your benefits
Yes, unfortunately this is the case. It's a pro-rated amount after your AGI exceeds a certain threshold. The generally increased per year so you can check the IRS web page or …check the social security web page for the AGI limitation. Charles Coker,CPA Charles, I think you answered a different question; What I think the original question was, is: "Do you pay FICA taxes on earned income after retiring (retirement meaning: collecting a SS benefit)?". I think the answer is simply: yes. Are there other ways that work can increase your benefits? Yes. Each year we review the records for all Social Security recipients who work. If your latest year of earnings turns out to be one of your highest years, we refigure your benefit and pay you any increase due.
No I am Ret AF just have FITW and s percentage that I preset before retiring that goes to State
Retired people don't pay taxes, they get paid instead by the government. ans The above is entirely wrong. I suspect he may mean that "retired" people get social security… - which is not at all always true. one can retire at any age, and frequently one retires because they have made or accumulated enough wealth that the income from itis what they will live on. And like social security itself, it too is taxable. FEDERAL TAXES ARE THE SAME THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY...YOUR STATE MAKE NO DIFFERENCE. (However, State tax laws are specific to each area, and generally follow the Federal guidelines, but not always). Whether you have to file a tax return (or pay tax) depends, in part, on your filing status, deductions, amount & type of income. THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS START AND STOP AGES, OR DON'T HAVE TO FILE (or pay) BECAUSE RETIRED, OR ON SS, OR WORK FROM HOME, OR MADE IT ON THE INTERNET, OR A STUDENT, OR IT WAS A BONUS, VACATION PAY, AWARD, OR SUCH.....it is all addressed as a matter of "how much TAXABLE income". (Note working isn't relevant either, as many people who don't work or are retired, or disabled, or old, or young, or in school, have income from many sources...savings, investments, etc. and TAXABLE income is different than what you may otherwise think of as income...in most circumstances you have to do many of the calculations needed to file a return, just to determine what taxable income may be). Likewise, there are no special or fixed rates for retired, student, doctor, sanitation worker, President, convict...whatever. The amount of taxable income after applicable deductions and adjustments determines the rate applied to your particular situation. The rate, as well as the amount, you pay changes as the amount of income does. And it changes and is a different amount for each person, based on their own situation. And, the amount any person may pay is normally different on say dollar 1 as compared to dollar 25,000 Once put through the calculations, some may be taxable income and some may not...some taxable income may not be taxable TODAY, but is later, or it may be offset by losses, many things can happen. The amount withheld or estimated payments doesn't change how much you pay, just when you paid it. These items are discussed in other questions, but they are under YOUR control, not your employer etc. But they are required or there will be penalties. FIRST OFF TAX IS CALCULATED ON TAXABLE INCOME WHICH IS NOT THE SAME AS WHAT WAS "MADE" USING ANY OTHER METHOD. IT IS NOT YOUR SALARY. IT MUST BE DETERMINED TO CALCULATE TAX. Income of different types is taxed differently, if at all, and each person is taxed differently. DETERMINING IT IS 99% OF MOST TAX MATTERS. Hence there is no tax bracket, or percent or anything for "someone making X$". Whatever the amount is, one could pay nothing, to a very high percent, depending on what results when calculating taxable income. After determining if your even taxable at all, much more goes into determining how much tax is due, and even how much was paid. Again, sometime in life you must have heard things, spoken and written about virtually everyday, in news, social, school and business situations and concerning tax. Things like location, marital status, number of dependents, how much and type of deductions or expenses you have (like medical or interest paid on a home), how or the costs in how the money was made....etc, etc! Maybe your just think all that applies to everyone else and not you? UNDERSTAND 2 PEOPLE, WORKING AT THE SAME JOB MAKING THE SAME WAGE, WILL ALMOST NEVER PAY THE SAME TAX! Other than their personal situations like married or not, children or other dependents, charitable contributions, what they choose and how the employer handles medical, retirement and many other elections at work, what if any interest or other taxes they pay, how they spend their money....and many other elections surrounding how any one person chooses to handle their filing options, their investments and much, much more...the differences that result can be substantial. Heck, every year you probably see a local TV station having 10 experts (normally incl the IRS too), calculate the tax for someone...and get 10 different answers...most all of which may actually be right! It is probably a good indicator you need to get professional assistance in doing it (handling your tax AND financial affairs), and also start learning what is involved, because the one that can do it best for you....is you! Virtually no 2 people with even the same job and income, or getting income from some source, will owe the same tax. That is why all those steps, forms and considerations that must be addressed and then properly applied need to be done.
Real estate taxes are charged to the owner of real estate not the renter. Indirectly the renter is paying for a portion of the real estate tax in the rental rate being charged… by the owner. If your question concerns the renting of property that you own as a retired person, contact the local assessor in your city or county, as the tax laws vary by state within the United States.
Corpration closed owning taxes I retired on my husband railroad retirement can the irs garnish my check.
If you have income, you pay income tax. When I drew my first SSN check, I was quite surprised to find out Uncle Sam wanted his share of my share.
Yes, you have to pay taxes on your retirement at a rate determined by your retirement income, which should be much lower than your working income. Yes, you have to pay taxes o…n your retirement at a rate determined by your retirement income, which should be much lower than your working income.
That depends on the laws of the country in which you live.
