Im so afraid to ask. TAX ?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So have 2 children both on social security (father died) and I did not work in 2012 nor did I receive unemployment. SS 1099 came yesterday , I received around 11,000 dollars jointly for their care in 2012 . My question is do I file taxes , do I have to pay out or would I receive a refund? I donot own anything car, home or bank accounts so yes I'm in the poor category. On foodstamps and medical for the 3 of us. My question is an honest one -I am not a troll .

Social security is not considered earned income.

Quoting baquick:

I believe Yes. You still "earned income" during the tax year.

It is a death benefit, different then the SSI these other ladies are telling you not to file on. Yes you file, but no you won't have to pay. Call the IRS and ask to be sure. I always file my DD's but my DH claims her so he has income. But it is always better to be safe than sorry. We file our taxes through the IRS website e-file.

I don't think so, is it regular SS? With an added job?
