With your help, AB 1623 (Ramos), the bill to exempt military retirement pay from California state taxes, has passed the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee 10-1. The next stop is the Appropriations Committee, which is another major hurdle. Please help Assemblyman Ramos and California’s active veterans convince the legislature that this bill needs to pass this committee! Contact your legislators again and ask them to get behind this bill and pass it through Appropriations.
Veterans and Advocates,
AB 1623 recognizes the vital services these uniformed service members contribute to our nation and intends to extend a state benefit to those who served for twenty years – the uniformed services’ retirement age. AB 1623 also recognizes our state’s National Guard and provides that the exemption benefit begins at 60 years of age.
The purpose of AB 1623 is twofold: to honor those who dedicated their life to serving their country, and to retain and attract uniformed service retirees to California for the purposes of strengthening the state’s skilled workforce, bringing stability to communities, and contributing to the state and local tax base.
Please help us tell the Assembly that the veterans’ community strongly supports AB 1623 and supporting those who served in the uniformed services. Use our simple, fast online letter-writing tool to send a letter to your legislators today.
Thank you for your support!
