I entered my Social Security Income (SSI). Why is the taxable amount zero?

Unless you have a certain amount of other income, your Social Security Income (SSI) is not taxable. Other income can include wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that you report on your tax return.

To determine if any of your SSI is taxable, we add up your adjusted gross income, nontaxable interest and half of your SSI to get what’s called your “combined income.” Since your combined income didn’t exceed the specified thresholds, you don’t need to include any of your SSI in your gross income.
