Calculator for IRS Publication 915 Worksheet 1. Are Social Security Benefits Taxable

I found this calculator while trying to understand if and how social security benefits are taxed. It's for 2019 but I don't believe anything’s changed for 2020.
Please delete if it's not appropriate or if everyone knows about it.

You can mimic the form in Excel just using simple @IF functions.

As far as I can tell you're right, there are no changes for 2020 for this area of tax law. The threshold amounts don't seem to be indexed in any way.

It is a common calculation that does happen to be taken care of by the tax prep software I use.

The following calculator was recently updated to include 2020:

Also I don't see any differences from 2019
Took SS at 62 and hope I live long enough to regret the decision.
