I guess it depends on the amount of your MAGI, provisional income; for example, you need to pay tax on your SSI benefits IF the amount of your MAGI(50% of SSI plus AGI), provisional income, I mean is more than $32K. so, if your MAGI is, for example, $34,500;$23000, income, +$11500, 50% of SSDI,.so 50% of Soc. Sec. income($11,500)or 50% of amount your MAGI exceeds threshold($1,250) – whichever is less is included in your AGI on 1040 line 37.


#2; as mentioned above.it depends on yur magi
