2022 Income Tax Exemption for Teacher Pensions

Per the 2022 Connecticut Resident Income Tax Return Instructions, Teachers receiving income from the Connecticut Teachers’ Retirement Board may take either the 50% Teachers’ Retirement Pay subtraction that is not subject to income limitations or the 100% Pension and Annuity subtraction that is subject to income limitations.

Connecticut law does not allow a double benefit for the same income.

The modification applies to the extent such income is properly included in the taxpayer’s federal AGI for the taxable year.
