HelloAnything specific for 2016 is not out yet so you will have to rely on 2015 published information.The OECD has compiled pension information for the countries. Look to Table 4 on page 16 which shows you the tax on pensions for each country.There is no specific information for UN pension because the pension taxation depends on residency and the source of the pension. The source is generally seen as from earnings in the US (even though the earnings may not have been taxable in the US).I sincerely ***** ***** is helpfulhttp://www.oecd.org/pensions/private-pensions/Stocktaking-Tax-Treatment-Pensions-OECD-EU.pdf

I have already contacted UNJSPF and they do not have such a listing. Searching on the web I have identified the Emirate, India, Austria, and Malaysia, who provide a full tax exemption on United Nations pension income. This search on the web took me less than 10 minutes to got these information. I was thinking you will provide me with better feedback on my request, but apparently it is not the case !!!
Financial Professional: bkb1956, Finance Enthusiast replied 2 years ago
To be honest, my research revealed more countries that provide full exemption on UN pension income than you have listed in your latest response. I hope that UNJSPF can possibly point me in a better direction, but I will continue to research this and let you know.Best regards,Barb

I plan on giving the UNJSPF a couple more days to respond to my email. If I do not hear from them, I will call their NY office.Thanks for your patience.Best regards,Barb

FYI--I called the NY office of UNJSPF, but the hold time was excessive. However, the recorded message mentioned that replies to emails take at least 7 days, and my email is still within that timeframe. I'll let you know what I find out.Best regards,Barb
