I tried to check this out online, but apparently couldn't come up with the right incantation of search arguments. I'm thinking ahead to the time we retire and I've heard two different opinions on the taxation of social security benefits.

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?
