Hello, I'm Jeremy from TurboTax with some tax tips for retirees. Now that you are retired and enjoying life, the last thing on your mind is likely to be your federal income tax. But there are still ways you can minimize the amount you owe each year. It's likely you receive monthly social security benefits. But did you know that is is possible for the IRS to tax some of those payments. This only happens if the other income you receive is too high. Generally, if all your other income plus 50 percent of your social security benefits exceed a certain threshold for your filing status then you will end up paying some tax on your benefits. If you do pay some income tax on those benefits there are other things you can do to limit the impact of those taxes. One option is to find some tax-exempt investments to replace some of the taxable ones you own. This way you reduce your overall tax and can possibly keep your social security benefits in lower tax brackets. An example of this type of investment is state and local municipal bonds. The interest you earn on those bonds are exempt from federal tax. And in some cases it may also be exempt from state income tax. One other way to reduce your tax liability is by claiming the tax credit for the elderly and disabled. As long as you are at least 65 years old, file a joint return if married, and meet other income requirements it can be a valuable tax reduction tool.

Hola, soy Jeremy de TurboTax con algunos consejos de impuestos para jubilados. Ahora que estás jubilado y disfrutando de la vida, probablemente la última cosa en tu mente sea tu impuesto sobre la renta federal. Pero todavía hay maneras en que puedes minimizar la cantidad que adeudas cada año. Es probable que recibas mensualmente las prestaciones de seguridad social. Pero ¿sabías que es posible que el IRS grave algunos de esos pagos? Esto solamente sucede si los demás ingresos que recibes son muy altos. En general, si todos tus otros ingresos, más el 50 por ciento de tus beneficios de seguridad social exceden un umbral determinado por tu estado de presentación, entonces vas a terminar pagando algunos impuestos sobre tus beneficios. Si pagas algunos impuestos sobre esos beneficios, hay otras cosas que puedes hacer para limitar el impacto de los impuestos. Una opción es encontrar algunas inversiones exentas de impuestos para reemplazar a algunos de los sujetos pasivos de tu propiedad. De esta manera reduces tus impuestos en general y posiblemente puedas conservar tus beneficios de seguridad social en categorías impositivas menores. Un ejemplo de este tipo de inversiones son los bonos municipales locales y estatales. Los intereses que ganas de esos bonos están exentos de impuestos federales. Y, en algunos casos, también pueden estar exentos del impuesto sobre la renta estatal. Otra forma de reducir tu responsabilidad fiscal es reclamando el crédito fiscal para los ancianos y los discapacitados. Siempre y cuando tengas por lo menos 65 años de edad, presenta una declaración conjunta si eres casado, y cumples con otros requisitos de ingreso que pueden ser una herramienta valiosa de reducción de impuestos.
