Federal Taxes On Retirement Income  

The income received as retirement benefit is taxable at ordinary rates. Therefore, it implies that the tax rate actually depends on the total earnings of that particular year no matter if it comes from pension or any other sources. Tax rates do not take into account the person’s age. IRS tax rates are applied in similar fashion to all the earning citizens.

There are companies who recommend a kind of tax benefit retirement plan to their employees by means of 401(k), 403(b) and few other retirement pension plans most of which are tax deferred. An amount that is taken out of the tax deferred pension plan it should be filed in the income tax return as the taxable income. This taxable pension income should be reflected in the line 12a and 12b of the federal tax return form 1040A or in the lines 16a and 16b if the form used is 1040. These are taxed by the federal as regular income. In case of Roth pension, however, the income emerges out as tax free as long as the income is qualified. In such an instance it is mandatory to reflect the income as pension benefit in the form 1040A or 1040.

There are certain states that charge state income tax on the pension amount also. The tax rates however, are different in various states. In the states such as Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York and Pennsylvania the pensions disbursed by the government are not charged whether it is from the federal, state or local government office. In the contrary states, like California, Connecticut, Nebraska, Rhode Island and Vermont, they never allow any tax breaks on pension amount.
