Getting all the right Social Security paperwork together for tax time is very important.
Jack Myers with Social Security says there's a number of forms you're going to want to make sure you have when filling out your tax returns. Myers says you should already have those forms, if not, they are likely on their way.
If you did not get those forms or if you've misplaced them, Myers indicates you do have options to retrieve those. You can go online to socialsecurity.gov or visit an office near you.
If you're new to filing taxes and receiving Social Security benefits, Myers says there might be some surprises and ways to get those issues fixed.
To get any questions answered, many are in the 'Frequently Asked Questions' area of the socialsecurity.gov website, or you can find an office near you and get those questions answered.
Myers indicates their call volumes and appointments do increase in the first part of the month, but indicates they will have time to get you answers to your questions.
