The new year always brings questions about taxation of Social Security benefits and receipt of 1099’s.
Earlier this week, I wrote about when people might have to pay federal income taxes on their Social Security benefits. No one pays federal income tax on more than 85 percent of his or her Social Security benefits based on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules.
The SSA-1099 for Tax Year 2014 will be mailed by January 31, 2015.
Referring to my post of January 5, these are sent to your mailing address as shown on Social Security records so I hope yours is correct.
You can request a replacement SSA-1099 for Tax Year 2014 on or after February 1, 2015.
If you need a replacement SSA-1099 for Tax Year 2013 or earlier, see instructions here.
