Support Tax Change Effort – Impacts Retired Teachers, Military and more


DC Raises Taxes
on Retired Military,
Teachers, Others…

Support us by emailing your council

Nearly 40,000 retired military veterans,
postal workers, firefighters, police officers,
teachers and other federal and DC civil servants just lost
a tax benefit that DC repealed without notice.
The Pension Benefit Exclusion—a law in force for 57
years—allowed retired public servants to exclude $3000
from income when calculating their local taxes. The DC
Council repealed the exclusion without notice, surprising
many seniors when they filed their 2015 returns.
