We are a retired couple who are living on Social Security. The way it works, you pay into it for umpteen umpteen years, earn enough "quarters" and what ever age you choose to begin collecting (starts at 62), determines how much you wiill get permonth unti you doe. You don't pay taxes unless your income from other sources exceeds a certain amount. Sounds fair to me. Bottom line: In most years, we don't pay FEDERAL income taxes. But we do pay hefty amounts in state, city, sales and other taxes.
