It depends on your other income. There is a formula to help you calculate tax you might owe in the instruction booklet of 1040.

yes...you have to file taxes even if your only income is social security

ONly if you total income including half your social security exceeds $25,000 if single, and $32,000 if married

If social security is your only income, you do not have to file.  If you are single, you only have to file if you have other income and your total NET is $25,000 or higher including your SS.

I have a sister that has only SS.  She gets about $1100 per month.  She does not have to file except when they were handing out the Stimulus check and then everyone had to file in order to get it.  If you are not sure, ask a CPA but, I know this is true.

You do not have to file if this is your only income. Except if they'r giving out a stimulus then everybody needs to file. If you have other income, then there is a form to fill out that will help you determine.
