Yes, it could depending on the potential excess over the income threshholds for the taxation of benefits. Keep in mind that many benefits recipients are not aware such taxation is possible. Many discover it only at tax filing time. Obviously, they don't pay attention to the literature they receive because it's not a secret and is highlighted in many SSA pubs and in the media from time to time.
