Due to the hardships of 2020 many people had to reach out to other situations. Maybe you took early social security which may have limited your earnings. Or maybe they’re also getting long-term disability but you also had somebody in the house that was working. So you need to determine long-term social security in itself from disability social security is not taxable unless you have other income. Same thing with any social security benefits. But if you’re working a job on the side you might be making your social security not only taxable but if it’s early social security you might be paying back $1 for every $2 you earn above the limitations.
