Veterans defended our country’s freedom without thought to their own safety or convenience. We owe them the respect and dignity to enjoy their post-service years without excessive tax liabilities.
Utah is one of only 7 states that taxes all military retirement pay.
Utah is quick to play the patriot card even though Veterans can't afford to stay here. The state income tax on veteran retirement pay leads a lot of veterans to leave the state. Inflation has steadily eaten away at the state retirement tax credit. It hasn't not been adjusted in at least 23 years and it needs to be reevaluated. Veterans are vital to the continued health and vitality of our communities and deserve a secured place within those communities.
Adjust state income tax on military retirement pay for veterans.
