To date, there have been no changes when it comes to military pensions in Georgia. The pensions are taxable.
There is a retirement exclusion in Georgia that you may qualify for.
From the GA Dept. of Revenue:
"For tax year 2007, the maximum retirement income exclusion is $30,000 for taxpayers who are:
(A) 62 years of age or older, or
(B) permanently disabled to such an extent that they are
unable to perform any type of gainful employment."
There is also a low income credit.
"You qualify if you are a Georgia resident, your Federal AGI is less than $20,000, and you are not claimed or eligible to be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer on their Federal or Georgia return."
