  • A good rule of thumb is to set aside 30-35% of your income for taxes. Of course, individual tax situations will vary based on number and size of income sources. Dependent on your income, your Social Security benefit may be taxed. It's a good idea to forecast your work income and Social Security prior to drawing the benefit. You may choose to call the Social Security office or to reach out to a financial planner.
