Hogan proposes end to state income taxes on military pensions

Gov. Larry Hogan marked Veterans Appreciation Month on Thursday by renewing his call for elimination of state income taxes on Marylandís military retirees.

At a State House news conference, Hogan contended that such a move is needed to keep the stateís military retirees from moving to states that already have that exemption, such as West Virginia and Pennsylvania. He said he will submit legislation doing away with such taxation when the General Assembly reconvenes in January for its annual 90-day session.

Hogan, a Republican, noted that he originally proposed a full exemption in 2015 when he first took office. The General Assembly amended his proposal to allow an exemption on the first $10,000 of military pay. The governor said that when he resubmitted legislation for a full exemption in 2017, the Democratic-led legislature never brought it up for a committee vote.

The governor promised to enlist veteransí groups to lobby for next yearís bill.
