Did you file form SSA -632 and were clear about your reasons?  Did you hear back from them on any reconsideration?

Sounds like Social Security overpaid you in prior months and IRS is paying itback  from your tax refund. 

Why is SS claiming they overpaid you?  You should have gotten letter explaining what you owe back , how its was computed, and why.  If you are talking a few hundred dollars,  can't SS take it out of you future checks assuming SS is right.  Or if you are fraudulently getting SS, (say $10-20K in past payments), you need a lawyer to defend you cuz you willingly committed fraud.  Some people dont tell SS when a parent died, still getting monthly SS checks (and cashing them)  for deceased.  They think SS and US wont find out...WRONG!!!

I share your views of Social Security, there are so many things going on and a blind eye says nothing, when will this change, these are our elected officials who we vote into office.  Mid-terms are coming along this is the time to vote for change, someone who will stand up for us as we are the majority!!!   Remember we have the power if we vote for change.

@k212924swrote:

I received a back award of 35000, on my social security disability ward plus my monthly payment. I am being taxed on $ 55000. I'm scared to death to get my taxes done. I wasn't aware that I would have to pay taxes on this income


I came back to tell you specifically what the IRS says about your problem and the options they give you to figure any tax that might be due, if any.

 

IRS - FAQ on Taxing of Back Payments of Social Security benefits

 

You DO NOT have to file amended returns but you must use the LUMP SUM ELECTIONS method of figuring any tax is due.

 

Go to IRS Publication 915 and then scroll down to the highlighted term LUMP SUM ELECTION for complete instructions on completing the worksheet.
