Our Plan to Eliminate Taxes on Social Security

Lessening the financial burden on our seniors so they can live out their golden years in comfort and security is extremely important to me.

That's why I'm in full support of exempting Social Security income from the state income tax.

This tax relief could save Connecticut seniors up to $45 million a year. Providing seniors with increased financial security will help them remain in their homes and generate economic activity.

Connecticut already offers a high quality of life for seniors. Passing this legislation will send a strong message that Connecticut is the right place to retire.

Connecticut is one of 13 states that impose some form of state tax on Social Security income. Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and West Virginia also tax Social Security benefits.
