Is Social Security Income (SSI) considered taxable income?

Generally, Social Security Income (SSI) is not taxable. However, a portion of your SSI may be taxable if you have other income in addition to what you receive from Social Security. Other income can include wages, self-employment, interest, dividends or other taxable income that you report on your tax return.

Go to this section in Credit Karma Tax: Social Security Benefits

Credit Karma Tax will determine if your SSI is taxable by using your combined income and comparing it with the base amount allowed for your filing status.
