Reduce Income Tax Social Security Benefits

Concerning the expansion of the state income tax subtraction for social security benefits.
2024 Regular Session

Bill Summary

The bill expands the current income tax subtraction for social security benefits. Current law allows any individual who is 65 years of age or older at the close of a taxable year to subtract the total amount of social security benefits that the individual received from the individual's federal taxable income, to the extent those benefits were included in federal taxable income, when determining the individual's state taxable income. The bill expands this subtraction to an individual who is 55 years of age or older but less than 65 years of age and whose adjusted gross income for the applicable tax year is less than or equal to $75,000 if filing individually or $95,000 if filing jointly. The bill requires the department of revenue to collect information necessary to measure the effectiveness of the income tax subtraction.
