Do any of you youngsters realize that SS benifits are taxable.? As you do know SS withholdings from your paychecks.are done AFTER taxes are taking out. I was shocked when doing my Income tax return the first year that I retired to find out that I had to include SS benefits in my taxable income. That is DOUBLE TAXATION. Congress never mentioned this because they probably don't know it since I believe they are under a different TAX FREE retirement plan.
this reminds me of the publicity that Coke got when they dropped Coke and went to real coke or something like that. The reponse accross the nation was fantastic and after a few weeks they went back to the normal Coke and all was fine.
