Tax Law (Questions About Taxes)/Military Retirement and Taxes


I was stationed in TX and became a TX resident.  I then PCS'ed to AZ and later retired from the military in AZ.  When I retired, I stayed a TX resident.  I immediately found employment in AZ, but I'm still a TX resident and my retirement isn't being taxed as a result.  Does my military retirement need to stay taxed by TX or do I need to become a AZ resident to be taxed by AZ statues since I'm still a TX resident but I live and work in AZ?

you are taxed on all income where you are a resident.

if you are working in arizona, and have done for a little while, you are likely now an arizona resident.

you can return to texas and then be a texas resident, but in the meantime, you are an arizona resident...

where do you vote? bank? go to church? live? own property?  grocery shop, relax, take time off to fish golf, etc.

where do you go to the doctor, dentist, etc.

NOTE: My discussions are only a general information and do not constitute tax advise without entering into a specific agreement and executing an engagement letter; This free chat is nothing more than general information and should not be construed as tax advice nor does my response or replies imply an agreement to provide client specific advice or other guidance for purposes of avoiding IRS tax or penalties and should not be relied upon without your own validation and confirmation of the how the discussion may fit your facts... Not having all the facts and/or not having a direct client relationship prevents me from providing the most accurate replies as possible and I highly suggest using a local CPA to provide you with written advice and guidance. Taking matters into your own hands is much akin to trying to land an airplane without a license. It is easy to FLY a plane, but LANDING is when critical experience is key. In short, caveat emptor; do your homework and don't just rely on free chat board advice anywhere, anytime.
