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.

From the GA Dept. of Revenue:


"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."
