Is there a list of retirement system benefits that may be excluded from Louisiana income tax?

Annual Retirement Income Exclusion (R.S. 47:44.1(A))—Persons 65 years or older may exclude up to $6,000 of annual retirement income from their taxable income. Taxpayers that are married filing jointly and are both age 65 or older can each exclude up to $6,000 of annual retirement income. If only one spouse has retirement income, the exclusion is limited to $6,000.

Federal Retirement Benefits Exclusion (R.S. 47:44.2)—Federal retirement benefits received by federal retirees, both military and nonmilitary, may be excluded from Louisiana taxable income.

    Walter ,I agree all Louisiana citizens should pay some sort of tax. We need to do away the federal and state income taxes and replace with a tax everybody pays. Don’t tax what you earn,tax what you spend,let’s say 10% on everything you spend,no exceptions. No right offs for anything,now what would be wrong with that?

  2. George Says:

    They don’t pay tax on their statement retirement income. They may pay tax on any other form of income. That’s a bit different than what you imply.

    I agree with Dan Burson Walter. You should have made a career out one of those jobs that are exempt from state income tax. I devoted over 30 yrs. of my life to the railroad, and during that time I paid into both social security and railroad retirement. You should be happy for those that you so readily ridicule. Non-taxable retirement income attracts many citizens to our state. Have a little compassion Walter, you too will someday reach those golden years and who knows, maybe journalism will also fall under these exemptions.

  6. Dan Burson Says:

    Hate to tell you Walter, most people within the Sheriff’s office are the deadheads on the pay roll.

    As a college professor I got out of the state retirement system the first year It was allowed The state allowed me to set up essentially a 401k, I contributed to it and the University did also. I monitor that money on a daily basis. I pay state taxes. I also did consulting on the side when I was teaching and, paid social security taxes and, as a result, I draw social security on those earnings. I get no money from the state. Having said that I do not begrudge anyone who draws a pension,they deserve it.
