Governor Proposes Income Tax Exemption on Military Retirement Pay

Following the Governor’s budget forecast, legislators were left with a lot to consider, including items that would offer veterans a reason to stay in North Dakota.

Governor Doug Burgum proposed a 100 percent state income tax exemption on military retirement pay for members of the U.S. Armed Forces, National Guard, and Reserve. OMB estimates this will cost the state 3 million dollars, which was taken into account in the budget address. We spoke with Veteran Services about what this could mean for our retired service members.

Mark Landis; Veterans Services: “I thought it was a very positive thing.. It’s something that makes the state more military friendly. There’s many benefits for veterans in the state right now, and this is one more thing that might help retain a very skilled and motivated workforce.”

The governor also recommended $15 million be dedicated to expanding our National Guard Training range at Camp Grafton South. His hope is that it will keep our troops training in-state, and bring out-of-state service members here.
