Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: I am the wife of a retired service member that I receive 50% of the community property pension. Do I have to pay taxes on the payment?

Answer: The federal government does tax military retirement benefits.  There are different rules for disability benefits.  Whether you will owe state tax is another question.  I am giving you a link to an article that details the position of each state.     Arizona does allow a portion of the  retirement to be excluded.  Please review this article at:  https://militarybenefits.info/states-that-do-dont-tax-military-retirement-pay/
