I stuck a postit in my tax folder last year as a reminder of the $255 SS death benefit for my husband. I didn't get a 1099 G. Is it taxable income and if so, does it just go with Other 1099-G income ?

Picture it. Sophomore year high school English class, discussing past participles under the guidance of Ruby Reed. She gave the infinitive, the student gave and spelled the past participle.

RR: "To sneak."

Student: "Snuk. S-N-U-K"

RR: "There is no such word as 'snuck,' and if there were it would be spelled 'S-N-U-C-K.'"

I digress. I don't think the SS benefit is taxable, but if it is it will appear on the 1099-SSA, not a 1099-G.
