"With the passage of HOuse Bill' 0 3, North Dakota resident taxpay- ers are now exempt from paying income tax on their military retirements" Rauschenberger stated. "North Dakota proudly joins 20 other states that currently exclude military retirement benefits from income tax." Beginning with the 2019 tax return, a new line on the North Dakota in- come tax return will be dedicated to the exclusion. Even with the ex- emption, military retirees that have a federal income tax filing requirement, will still have to file an individual income tax return to claim the exclu- sion. Ifa military retiree has already been withl olding North Dakota income tax from their payments in 2019, depending on their tax situation, they may be entitled to a refund for withholding already paid. The refund can be claimed when they file their 2019 individual income tax return in 2020. Rauschenberger encourages military retirees to go to www.dfas.mil/re- tiredmilitary to change their North Dakota income tax withholding to zero. For additional tax filing requirements and other information for mili- tary service members, taxpayers may go to www.nd.gov/tax/military. If you have any additional questions regarding your military retired or annuitant pay, you may call Defense Finance and Accounting Service at 888-332-7411, option 4, then option 3.
