1) Social Security benefits may be taxed if you have enough income from **any** other source be it job, pension,401K, 403b, Roth IRA, or whatever.

2) Social Security benefits may be taxed if you have enough **earned** income; income from investments, retirement accounts, pensions, and so forth do not affect the taxation of Social Security benefits.

Which is true -- or neither?



i'd say mostly (1), though definitely not from Roth
(tIRA, cap gains, int & dividends ..... )
