Provisions Affecting Taxation of Benefits
|Present law taxation of Social Security benefits||
These provisions revise the current rules for subjecting Social Security benefits to personal income tax. For the provisions listed below, we provide estimates of the financial effect on the OASDI program over the long-range period (the next 75 years) and for the 75th year. In addition, we provide detailed single year tables.
All estimates are based on the intermediate assumptions described in the 2008 Trustees Report. Choose the type of estimates (summary or detailed) from the list of provisions.
