Military Retirement Benefits Exemption
The exclusion also applies to military survivor benefits received under 10 U.S.C. 1447. The exemption is available to both residents and nonresidents of Iowa. Because the change is retroactive to January 1, 2014, individuals receiving military retirement benefits may immediately change or eliminate the amount of Iowa tax being withheld or their military pension. They may also leave their withholdings as they are and receive a refund when their taxes are filed. More information....
