Social Security: Federal, but not state, taxes can be voluntarily withheld from benefits
Q: Are taxes withheld from Social Security benefits?
A: Taxes are not routinely withheld from Social Security benefits but, especially during this time of year, another popular question is whether taxes can voluntarily be withheld from SSA payments.
Yes, you can request voluntary Federal tax withholding from your monthly benefit. You may find doing this easier than paying quarterly estimated tax payments.
