    Over payments and filing taxes

    I've been dealing with this issue for about 2 years now. Basically I'm making way over the limit of $14,000 or whatever the limit is where they stop Social Security checks. I've told them to stop sending me checks for the last 2 years and yet nothing is happening. I'm going to go in again and see what the malfunction is but the issue is filing taxes.

    When I file taxes it asks if the government is giving me any type of money. They are giving me $213 every month but I'm not using the money. Last time I just kept the checks and when they asked for the lump sum I just gave them back all their checks.

    This isn't an issue but the issue is tax return. This "money" that doesn't even exist is screwing me over when I file taxes.

    When I filed taxes last year I was suppose to get back $2,000 and as soon as I typed in how much the government gave me it took the $2,000 down to $400.

    Do I need to talk to IRS? Social security has no idea what I'm suppose to do in this situation. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    They will report this and come back when it is finally stopped and get you for back taxes. If you gave them back your checks....social security still reports that you received that money. You get a statement at the end of the year that says exactly how much they reported to the IRS.

    I don't know how to make them stop sending you payments. It took me two years to get mine stopped too.

    You need to call the IRS to avoid a huge mess.

    Deposit all checks and keep a good record of them.
    If you send back the checks there's an excellent chance that they'll get lost somewhere, and the only record they will have is that they sent them to you. It's not very likely that they'll be attributed to your account. So then you're on the hook for the total when they ask for it back.
    Write both SS and IRS. Keep copies of everything you send them.

    I would also add that every letter you send: Send it certified for someone to sign for it. Then you have proof the letters were delivered.

    I learned this the hard way.

    try to visit the social security office and speak with someone.

    I'd also suggest going to IRS to discuss this too.

    Mr.Coffee, I had the same thing happend and also several of my sci friends. Take my adviced, it cost me thousands of dollars well to be honest it cost me $29,000 dollars. I finally got a job 2 years after injury and I called social security and asked them to stop sending me checks i have a job now. They said i have over 36 months of eligibility left and they have to send me checks. So I quit cashing them, and save them, Boom they sent me replacement checks. I later got a settlement from my accident. I called social security told them, to quit sending me checks. I have a job and i got a settlement i dont' need their money same story. They said i have over 29 months of eligibility and the money is due me. I told them they are going to come after me for these payments, they said no everytime and send me new checks to replace the other ones i didn't cash. Well after 3 years they sent me a ltter we need over $30k for an overpayment made to me. I told them this is bullshit, they basically said, you are welcome to get an attornee and fight us either way your going to pay us, She wasn't kidding, i make then $700 payments every month or they will put a lien on my bank account everything good luck!!
