SSI (supplemental security income) payments are not taxable. SSDI (social security Disability Insurance) benefits may be taxable. You should receive a Form SSA-1099 from Social Security for benefits received from Social Security in 2009.
How much is taxable depends on the total amount of your benefits and other income, and your filing status. A worksheet to figure your taxable benefits is in the instructions for Form 1040, or from Pub 915 (Social Security Benefits). These are available from the IRS website http://www.irs.gov/app/picklist/list/formsInstructions.html
