You are correct.
If filing single and the only other income is the $13,000 wages, none of the $12000 from Soc Sec will be taxed.
I have prepared tax returns for nearly 40 years.
Cool. I’m in my eighth year and I hereby reserve the right to freepmail you if I get stumped by something!
PS - I made $17,000 babysitting last year - I wrote it down on a single piece of paper - and I want to claim my nieces and nephews....will you do my taxes? ;)
