This is about our pay checks we used to get when we got paid. And the pay checks today. Here is the story.. When I got my pay check what I remember seeing with held Soc/sec..tax. Social security wit held for our retirement.. And tax from our pay What I want to know is. Before social security is with held. Is tax taken from it first What I am getting at is now that our retirement is taxed. And if social security was taxed in the past from our pay. Are we or are we not being taxed two times for the same thing after the fact

Not sure about the States but as far as I know here in the UK we can be doubled taxed in the way that you mention.
