Military Retiree Pay Study
California currently is one of only nine states that fully tax the pay of its 146,000 military retirees. Many factors affect the decision of members of the Armed Forces regarding where they will live after retirement. Climate, housing costs, where they have been based, and employment opportunities are important. Whether or not a state taxes their military pension benefits is also a factor. Between 2000 and 2016, the nation’s population of military retirees increased by 17%. California, which was one of only five states that saw a reduction in the number of its military retirees, saw a decline of 17%.
This 2018 study analyzed what the impact would be of fully exempting retired military pay from taxes.
