The percentages I gave come from a spreadsheet I developed years ago to estimate my taxes in various situations. It's proven extremely accurate over several years. I'd have to have an additional $12K of income before I reach the maximum 85% of SS taxable. But above $9K I begin to lose the 0% rate on my qualified dividends and long term capital gains.
