Millions of taxpayers are gathering the forms they need to file their federal, state, and local tax returns. If you receive Social Security benefits, one of the forms you may need is your Social Security Benefit Statement, SSA-1099/1042S.
Social Security mails these forms to all beneficiaries on or before January 31. When February 2 arrives, if you have not received yours—or if you cannot find the one that was mailed to you—you can get instant access to a printable SSA-1099/1042S to help you complete your tax return with an online my Social Security account.
You will need to pay federal taxes on some of your benefits if your total income, including Social Security and all of your other taxable income, is $25,000 or more, and you file federal taxes as an individual. Married couples filing joint returns need to pay federal taxes on income of $32,000 or more.
If you didn’t receive the SSA-1099/1042S for tax year 2016 by January 31, 2017, or if you misplaced yours, you can get an instant replacement SSA-1099/1042S by going online to my Social Security at my Social Security and selecting “Replacement Documents.” You can view, print, and save the forms immediately!
If you don’t already have a my Social Security account, opening one is quick, safe and easy. It only takes a few minutes. In addition to getting an instant replacement SSA-1099/1042S, you can get a benefit verification letter, change your address, telephone number, start or change direct deposit information, and get your Social Security earnings record from the convenience of your home.
