Will The New Bill Affect SS Taxes?

  • Will the new tax bill affect how Social Security is taxed?
    Currently if a couples
    "Combined Income"
    Your adjusted gross income
    + Nontaxable interest
    + ½ of your Social Security benefits
    = Your “combined income”

       > $32,000 50% of SS is taxed   > $44,000 85% of SS is taxed**

    Has the new tax bill affected this?

  • I searched on “Social Security” in the 1097 page tax bill and found nothing addressing this.

    Very interested in any additional info on this as both my husband and I are now on SS, income of about $28,800/year total, and will be taking the standard deduction.
