What if you paid too much social security tax?
The wage base limit for social security tax withholding for 2008 is $102,000. The withholding is 6.2%, so the maximum per employee for the year is $6,324. Any amount withheld beyond that limit due to multiple employers is available as a credit against your income tax. If one employer erroneously withheld excess social security tax, that employer should make the correction.

A W-2 form lists the amount of Social Security taxes that were paid during the year.
The taxes that you are paying now for for the social security and medicare insurance program are being used to pay for the benefits that the current beneficiaries are receivin…g at this time and also some of the amount is being put into a trust fund that has some government assets for use in the future for your insurance benefits.
Well ptretty much the onlyway that can happen is if you had more than one employer and reached the max SS income (something like $108,500) that year. So employer one pai…d over on the first say 70K and employer 2 on the next say 60K...which means you paid on 130K (over the max). There is a part of the standard 1040 filing that leads you to another form you complete if this has happened.
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 whether y…ou 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
Potentially, yes-it depends on your income level. The amount taxed could be very low. In general, up to 50 percent of your SSDI benefits may be taxed, which is determined by a…dding up one-half of your SSDI benefits plus all of your other income sources. For the 2012 tax year, taxes are owed on any amount above a base level of $32,000 for couples filing jointly and $25,000 for individuals. Additionally, SSA benefits can be taxed up to 85 percent if the total of one-half of your benefits and all your other income for the tax year is more than $34,000 if filing single or $44,000 if you are married filing jointly; or if you are married, filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during the tax year.
Social security disability and social security benefits are the same thing and would be subject to income on your correctly completed 1040 income tax return When you have othe…r sources of world wide income. Generally, if Social Security benefits were your only income, your SSB benefits are not taxable and you probably do not need to file a federal income tax return. If you have any other sources of worldwide income and (tax exempt interest and exempt dividends) then it is possible for some of your SSB to become taxable income on your income tax return and then you would be required to file an income tax return.
Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for IRS Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits. Publication 915 is available on the IRS …Web site. Use the search box to choose the 1040 instructions. Page 28 of the 1040 instructions book has the Social Security Benefits Worksheet for Lines 20a and 20b of the 1040 tax form. If you received income from other sources, your benefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status. For a single taxpayer the base amount (cap) is $25,000. Your taxable benefits and modified adjusted gross income are figured on a worksheet in the Form 1040A or Form 1040 Instruction booklet. You can 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 you received to all your other 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, then some of your benefits may be taxable. From 50% to 85% of your SSB can become taxable income on your 1040 income tax return and would be added to all of your other gross income and taxed at your marginal tax rate.

If you were a employee and had a employer you can use the below information for your situation. Firms and workers file Form SS-8 to request a determination of the status of a …worker for purposes of federal employment taxes and income tax withholding. A Form SS-8 determination may be requested only in order to resolve federal tax matters. If Form SS-8 is submitted for a tax year for which the statute of limitations on the tax return has expired, a determination letter will not be issued. The statute of limitations expires 3 years from the due date of the tax return or the date filed, whichever is later. The IRS does not issue a determination letter for proposed transactions or on hypothetical situations. We may, however, issue an information letter when it is considered appropriate. The above information come from the Form SS-8 page 4 and it is available by going to the IRS gov web site and using the search box SS-8 You can click on the below related link
