Do you have a chart to show how much taxes I would have to pay when I retire with my pension and social security?

Please refer to the following worksheet to determine how much of your benefits may be taxable:

Worksheet A. You can use Worksheet A to figure the amount of income to compare with your base amount. This is a quick way to check whether some of your benefits may be taxable.

Worksheet A. A Quick Way To Check if Your Benefits May Be Taxable Keep for your records

A. Enter the amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099. Include the full amount of any lump-sum benefit payments received in 2010, for 2010 and earlier years. (If you received more than one form, combine the amounts from box 5 and enter the total.) - A.

Note. If the amount on line A is zero or less, stop here; none of your benefits are taxable this year.

B. Enter one-half of the amount on line A - B.

C. Enter your taxable pensions, wages, interest, dividends, and other taxable income - C.

D. Enter any tax-exempt interest income (such as interest on municipal bonds) plus any exclusions from income (listed earlier) - D.

E. Add lines B, C, and D - E.

Note. Compare the amount on line E to your base amount for your filing status. If the amount on line E equals or is less than the base amount for your filing status, none of your benefits are taxable this year. If the amount on line E is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. You need to complete Worksheet 1 on federal form 1040.

Hope this helps!
