How Much of Your Disability Benefits are Taxable?

Fifty percent of your disability benefits may be taxed if your income (total) is more than twenty five thousand dollars a year and less than 34,000. If you are married, your combined income being between 33,000 and 44,000 causes 50% of your benefits to be taxable. 85% of disability benefits are taxable for individuals with income over $34 k, or over $44 k for married couples. Yearly, the Social Security Administration will issue you a Benefit Statement, Form SSA-1099, which shows the amount of benefits you received. This statement is used to calculate the amount of benefits that are taxable.
