Ssa-1099

My daughter received SSA benefits her senior year of high school. Is she required to report that income, even tho she was full-time student living at home? Her dad is on disability, and she received SSA payment from his disability for child support(we're divorced).

a child can also collect benefits as her parent is disabled . When you file your own income taxes, the obvious scenario is that you have to claim your child?s benefits on your own income taxes ? but this isn?t the case. Generally, a child won?t collect enough Social Security benefits to file, but if 50% her benefits, plus any additional income, exceed $25k, you?ll have to file a separate return for your child.

do not enter a Form SSA-1099 for your daughter, your dependent, on your tax return. she should enter the SSA-1099 income on her own separate return.
